Abstract

The purpose of this pioneering study was to investigate the overall impactof unemployment on female managers compared to their male counterparts, anarea which to date has received no specific attention. A questionnaire wasdesigned based on a review of the relevant literature and content analysisof in-depth interviews with 40 unemployed managers. This was distributed to the 80 government run Executive Job Clubs located throughout England, andwas used to gain quantitative data exploring respondents' experiences of unemployment in terms of sources of stress, stress moderators, and stress outcomes. Completed questionnaires were received from 115 female and 169 maleunemployed managers registered at 46 Executive Job Clubs (return rate 47%). Multiple regression techniques were used to develop individual and comparative models of unemployment for unemployed female and male managers. The findings indicated that unemployed female managers encountered substantiallygreater sources of stress than their male counterparts in all aspects of unemployment. Increased stressors and less effective stress moderators resulted in female managers experiencing significantly poorer mental wellbeing and greater negative physical effects during unemployment than their male counterparts. Recommendations are made to key organisations.
