The Impact of Government Actions Under Public Emergencies on The Employment Quality of Medical College Graduates: Chinese Doctors During Covid-19
Keywords:Covid-19, Employment Quality, Government Actions
This study examines the changes in the evaluation of the employment quality of Chinese doctors during the COVID-19 pandemic under the intervention of government actions. In June 2020, 563 doctors were selected to conduct an employment quality survey in western China. This employment quality survey mainly focuses on social identity, work value and organizational behavior commitment from three dimensions, and tests the impact of government actions on the employment quality of Chinese doctors in the face of job risk and increased work pressure through the form of questionnaire. The results of hierarchical analysis and regression analysis show that after the outbreak of COVID-19, under the intervention of government actions, the turnover tendency of Chinese doctors decreases from 9% to 3%, and there are varying degrees of positive reflection in the evaluation of social identity, work value and organizational behavior commitment. The results show that government action, as an external influencing mechanism of employment quality, plays an important role in the face of occupational crisis. The intervention of government actions is helpful to study the positive changes in social identity, work value and organizational behavior commitment of Chinese doctors during the COVID-19 pandemic, and find the positive impact on their employment quality
