“…In Ecuador, the disease’s incidence may have generated a labor force that is very engaged with their work, since very high levels of the three dimensions of engagement have been obtained: vigor, dedication, and absorption. These are similar to a study with Dutch intensivists and another one with Brazilian nurses who attended during the pandemic; both found high levels of engagement as well as its dimensions [ 54 ], especially in people over 40 years of age [ 55 ]. In addition, the positive work engagement that Ecuadorian health personnel shows as providers of care, and their high level of CS, may be related to the value of social networks and the promotion of social support as protective factors of psychological wellbeing [ 56 ].…”

“…This phenomenon could be explained by the long history that women have had in this profession, assuming the role of caregiver (21). Internationally, it has been observed, in a study (35) conducted in the city of Sao José do Rio Preto (São Paulo, Brazil) on 75 PC nurses, that vigor levels were slightly above the dedication levels, 5.2 vs. 5.3, respectively. At the national level, something similar happens with the study (31) carried out in the northeast of Spain on a sample of 373 nurses from the hospital field, where higher mean scores were observed for the vigor subscale 4.68 (SD = 1.07) than dedication 4.61 (SD = 1.37) and absorption scores 4.34 (SD = 1.24).…”

Entre os preditores positivos estão a articulação entre valores pessoais e valores organizacionais (Andrade, 2019), práticas gerenciais e liderança (Novaes, Ferreira, & Garbado-Martins, 2019;Andrade, 2019;Silva, Ferreira, & Valentini, 2019;Oliveira & Rocha, 2017), participação na tomada de decisão (Chinelato, Ferreira, & Valentini, 2019), percepção de justiça no trabalho -distributiva e interpessoal (Andrade, 2019;Oliveira & Ferreira, 2016) -, resiliência (Oliveira & Ferreira, 2016), avaliação autorreferente, percepção de práticas de recursos humanos (Oliveira & Rocha, 2017;Chambel & Farina, 2015), boas relações no ambiente de trabalho (Santos, Castanheira, Chambel, Amarante, & Costa, 2017), autenticidade (Reis, Trullen, & Story, 2016), idade e experiência (Silva et al, 2020) e redesenho do trabalho (Chinelato, Ferreira, & Valentini, 2015).…”
