This study aimed to test the direct and moderating effects of self-efficacy and Chinese work values between job stressors (e.g., quantitative workload) and work well-being (e.g., job satisfaction, physical and behavioral symptoms) among employees in Hong Kong and Beijing. In a survey with 234 employees (Hong Kong: 105 employees; Beijing: 129 employees), the results show that self-efficacy was positively related to job satisfaction in both samples, and it was a significant stress moderator between stressors and job satisfaction among Hong Kong employees. Furthermore, the moderating role of Chinese work values between stressors and job satisfaction among Beijing employees was demonstrated.
