Salutogenesis views stress not necessarily negatively in the workplace or in the private lives of man, but as an opportunity for optimasation which can lead to positive outcomes regarding stress and coping. The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between salutogenesis and work orientation as two constructs of optimasation. Factor and reliability analyses of questionnaire data (N == 934), a correlation study and confirmatory structural analysis of latent variables were performed. A meaningful relationship between salutogenesis and work oriëntation was measured, but the findings also suggest independency. Interactively, the constructs seem to represent an optimal oriëntation in response to the bombardment of life and work stressors.

Salutogenese beskou stres nie noodwendig as negatief in die werksituasie en in die privaat lewe van die mens nie, maar eerder as optimaliseringsmoontlikheid ten einde positiewe stres- en coping-uitkomstes te bewerkstellig. Hierdie navorsing het ten doel die ondersoek na die moontlike verband tussen salutogenese en werkorientasie as optimaliseringskonstrukte. Faktor- en beoubaarheidsontledings is op vraelysdata gedoen (N = 934), korrelasies is bepaal en 'n bevestigende struktuurontleding van latente veranderlikes is gedoen. 'n Betekenisvolle verwantskap tussen salutogenese en werkorientasie is bevind, maar die bevindings dui ook aan dat die twee konstrukte onafhanklik staan. Interaktief blyk dit dat die konstrukte 'n optimale oriëntasie reflekteer in die bantering van lewens- en werkstressors.
