Abstract [en]

The present article reports on an empirical intervention aimed at testing the modern theory of competence at work. Competence is primarily defined as a way of understanding one's work and work tasks. In this study, a pretest and posttest design was used to measure job satisfaction, organizational climate, and prevalence of stress-related symptoms. In terms of these outcome variables, several aspects of job satisfaction increased significantly, whereas organizational climate and stress-related symptoms remained stable.
