Regulation of Social Times during the COVID-19 Period: A Replication and Extension of the Work Activity Regulation Model

Hanen Khanchel


The present study replicates St-Vincent and al. in 2011 experience sampling study of the work activity regulation model and addresses health crisis issue, which replicates the original study’s findings. Results suggest that social times is regulated within each Tunisian manager. Individuals’ or collective optimal social regulation state changed from public and organizational policies, but results did not support the original study’s claim regarding social satiation. Similarly, the study showed a significant number of events involved a risk to their occupational health and safety. However, the thematic analysis reveals disparities in the distribution of risk events for the manager as well as the type of risks to which he is exposed during the COVID-19 period. So, there are a significant number of managers who were confronted with a risk to their health more than times when unforeseen events occur. These events experienced by Tunisian managers during the COVID-19 period can be stressful. In fact, in order to withstand the stress inherent in each of the life spheres, some people want to maintain a permeable border between work and non-work to avoid overflows from one to the other.
