The Impact of Psychological Capital on Job Performance of Hong Kong Workers Over Time
Hong Kong is the world’s leading international financial center characterized by its low taxation, economic freedom, and non-interventionistic and capitalistic approaches. The tremendous economic growth is not without cost. Hong Kong working adults are faced with long working hours, high job demands, and poor work-life balance. Therefore, it is important to identify, examine, and understand the positive attributes that enable employees to flourish and thrive.

Work-related Well-being of Social Workers in Hong Kong
In a bustling modern city, Hong Kong working adults are faced with long working hours, high job demands, stressful urban lifestyles, and poor work-life balance, which can have detrimental effects on their well-being. This is especially the case among social workers. Therefore, identification of the protective factors that enable social workers to flourish and thrive is especially important in Hong Kong. The proposed study aims to address this pressing topic by promoting psychological research in community to enable academics and community stakeholders to investigate and shed light on the determinants of work-related well-being of social workers.

Validation of the Problem-solving Strategies Scale in Handling Everyday Problems
To enable rigorous examination of problem-solving strategies for theory and model testing, it is necessary to empirically assess the measure for validity and reliability. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to validate the problem-solving strategies scale in handling everyday problems. While this scale has been adopted in Hong Kong, it has never been assessed for the appropriateness of inferences made so its construct and criterion validity are currently unknown. Cross-sectional survey design will be adopted for validating the problem-solving strategies scale.

Employee Well-being in Hong Kong: The Role of Psychological Capital
Hong Kong working adults are faced with long working hours, stressful urban lifestyles, and poor work-life balance, which can have detrimental effects on well-being. There is a need to identify the protective factors that enable employees to flourish. Adopting a positive psychology approach to organizational research, the proposed study aims to identify the determinants of job burnout, psychological distress, and physical symptoms of stress. A cross-sectional survey will be conducted on working adults in Hong Kong.
