Abstract

The current study explores patterns of intraindividual demands and resources of ECE professionals in Austria during covid-19 by adopting a person-centred analytic approach. Latent Profile Analyses reveal three distinct subgroups (high demands/low resources vs. moderate demands/high resources vs. high demands/moderate resources). Results show that individuals assigned to the subgroup, which is characterized by moderate demands and high resources are less exhausted and show higher work engagement, than individuals assigned to the other subgroups. Individuals classified in the high demands and moderate resources are also less exhausted and more engaged than the individuals in the high demands and low resources group.
