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.


Analysis of the energy justice in natural gas distribution with Multiscale Geographically Weighted Regression (MGWR)
Şenyel Kürkçüoğlu, Müzeyyen Anıl (2023-12-01)
The Author(s)Energy justice is violated when particular customers and locations are excluded from a variety of urban energy service distribution. This study explores energy justice in terms of natural gas distribution by providing empirical evidence from 356 neighborhoods of Izmir Metropolitan Area (IMA). The aim is to reveal driving factors of natural gas investment and the spatial reflections of the relationships between investment, and socio-economic and physical characteristics. A global regression mode...
Determination of Nonlinear Joint Forces and Nonlinear Identification of Jointed Connections Using FRFs
Soleimani, Hossein; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2023-01-01)
The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.Identification and modeling of joint dynamics is an important issue in the dynamic modeling of structures with joints. Moreover, structures connected by joints may show nonlinear behavior due to the existence of dry friction between the connected elements, especially at higher levels of vibration. Therefore, nonlinear identification of joints and parameterization of them is a necessary step in the dynamic analysis of structures. In thi...
Compatibility of the dimensional reduction and variation procedures for a quadratic curvature model with a Kaluza–Klein Ansatz
Başkal, Sibel; Çelik, Sinan (2022-10-01)
The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.The introduction of extra dimensions is an invaluable strategy for the unification of gravity with other physical fields. Nevertheless, the matter in hand is to be eventually reduced to the actual 4D spacetime. The Kaluza–Klein theory is no exception to this well-known scheme. There are two procedures to obtain the field equations from a higher dimensional action. One can either take the variation of the ...
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...
