Impact of Self-Orientations and Work-Context-Related Variables on the Well-Being of Public- and Private-Sector Turkish Employees

İmamoğlu, Emine Olcay
Beydogan, Basak
The authors (a) explored the impact of individual differences in self-orientations (i.e., relatedness and individuation) of 383 Turkish public- and private-sector employees on their basic need satisfaction at work and their well-being (i.e., life satisfaction and psychological well-being); (b) considered differences in perceived autonomy- and relatedness-supportiveness of the work contexts; and (c) tested a model in which the relationship between self-orientations and well-being is partially mediated by the perceived supportiveness of the work context and the need satisfaction of employees at work, using structural equation modeling. Results suggest that self-orientations of employees predict their well-being both directly and indirectly through the mediation of perceived supportiveness and need satisfaction provided by the work context, which seem to vary according to sector type.


Relationship between familiarity, attitudes and preferences: Assisted living facilities as compared to nursing homes
İmamoğlu, Çağrı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-11-01)
In this paper, the authors aim to (a) explore attitudes toward and preferences for living in the newly emerging place type of assisted living facilities in comparison to nursing homes, and (b) assess the possible impact of familiarity on those attitudes and preferences. Ninety-eight respondents (with a mean age of 62) were surveyed. Respondents were found to be more favorable toward assisted living facilities than nursing homes. A three-factor model was proposed in which attitudes mediated between familiari...
Effects of Drama-Based Geometry Instruction on Student Achievement, Attitudes, and Thinking Levels
DUATEPE PAKSU, ASUMAN; Ubuz, Behiye (Informa UK Limited, 2009-03-01)
The authors investigated the effects of drama. based instruction on students' geometry achievement, geometric thinking level, attitudes toward mathematics and geometry, and retention of achievement, in comparison with traditional teaching. The sample involved 102 7th-grade students from a public school. Multivariate analyses of covariance revealed that drama-based instruction had a significant effect on students' achievement, retention of achievement, thinking level, and attitudes, regardless of gender, mat...
Representing preferences by choquet integral: Guidelines to specify the capacity type
Dolgun, Leman Esra; Burnak, Nimetullah; Köksal, Gülser (Growing Science, 2020-06-01)
© 2020 by the authors; licensee Growing Science, Canada.This study considers representing decision maker preferences by Choquet integral in existence of interactions among criteria. Parameters of the Choquet integral are capacities which assign weights not only to criteria but also to each subset of criteria. This property provides Choquet integral with the ability of modeling some types of interactions. Different capacity types with different degrees of complexity have been defined in the literature. After...
Techno-economic comparative analysis of renewable energy systems: Case study in Zimbabwe
Al-Ghussain, Loiy; Samu, Remember; Taylan, Onur; Fahrioglu, Murat (2020-09-01)
© 2020 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.Fluctuations in fossil fuel prices significantly affect the economies of countries, especially oil-importing countries, hence these countries are thoroughly investigating the increase in the utilization of renewable energy resources as it is abundant and locally available in all the countries despite challenges. Renewable energy systems (RES) such as solar and wind systems offer suitable alternatives for fossil fuels and could ensure the energy securi...
Activity-Based Photosensitizers with Optimized Triplet State Characteristics Toward Cancer Cell Selective and Image Guided Photodynamic Therapy
Kilic, Eda; ELMAZOĞLU, ZÜBEYİR; Almammadov, Toghrul; KEPİL, DİLAY; Etienne, Thibaud; Marıon, Antoıne; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Kolemen, Safacan (2022-01-01)
© 2022 The Authors. Published by American Chemical Society.Activity-based theranostic photosensitizers are highly attractive in photodynamic therapy as they offer enhanced therapeutic outcome on cancer cells with an imaging opportunity at the same time. However, photosensitizers (PS) cores that can be easily converted to activity-based photosensitizers (aPSs) are still quite limited in the literature. In this study, we modified the dicyanomethylene-4H-chromene (DCM) core with a heavy iodine atom to get two ...
