Stress, alcohol use and work engagement among university workers in Nigeria
This study examined the relationship among stress, workplace alcohol use and work engagement among 228 University of Nigeria, Nsukka, workers. The results of the regression analyses showed that job stress significantly predicted workplace alcohol use (â = .17, p < .01). Workplace alcohol
use also significantly predicted employee work engagement (â = -.35, p < .001). The results also showed that gender is a significant predictor of workplace alcohol use (â = -.20, p < .01). Marital status also significantly predicted workplace alcohol use (â = -.16, p < .05). The implications of
these findings to work productivity and workplace counseling were discussed.
