Dr. Heewon Kim and colleagues examined how perceived qualities of change communication, organizational support, and supervisor support during the COVID-19 pandemic influenced young adult workers’ resilience and efficacy.

An online survey among 293 South Korean young adult workers was conducted in July 2020.

Key findings include: 

— Young adult workers who felt support from their supervisors also had higher perceptions of resilience and self-efficacy.

— When young adult workers’ perceived resilience increased, their burnout at work decreased.

— Workers’ resilience and efficacy were not impacted by change communication nor perceived organizational support. 

— Young professionals’ perceived efficacy of themselves was not associated with their burnout at work.
