Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Proceedings of Gender, Work and Organization 4th International Interdisciplinary Conference
In the present study coping was viewed both as individualistic and collective phenomenon. The aim of the investigation was to study gender and power differences in the use of collective and individualistic coping strategies. Data were collected by means of an Internet based questionnaire sent to 1345 female and male employees both at a managerial and non-managerial level working in a Swedish telecom company. The response rate was 71%. The total number of participants was 951, of which 489 were women (82 managers and 407 non-managers) and 446 were men (89 managers and 357 non-managers). The results showed differences in coping both related to gender and organizational level. There was no interaction effect between gender and organizational level.
