Recent positive psychology literature has consistently demonstrated the link between PsyCap (composite score of hope, efficacy, resilience, and optimism—HERO) and employee productivity. However, most of these studies were conducted in industrial or organizational settings and have mostly examined the independent effect of hope, efficacy, resilience, and optimism. Not much research has been conducted in the educational setting. In this study, we examined the association of PsyCap with psychological well-being and job performance among Filipino teachers. Through hierarchical regression analysis, data from 180 Filipino teachers indicated that PsyCap is linked to adaptive outcomes: psychological well-being and job performance. Limitations and implications of the study were provided. Copyright © 2016 De La Salle University.
