Abstract: The study was to verify the moderated mediation effect of growth mindset on the relationship between stress and happiness through hope for 338 office workers in Korea. SPSS Win. 21.0 were used to analyze the reliability, descriptive statistics, and correlation analysis in this study. The moderated mediation effect of growth mindset was analyzed by applying SPSS PROCESS macro Model 7. To verify the moderated mediation effect, the bootstrap analysis was set to 5,000 iterations, and the confidence interval was set to 95%. Research findings are as follows. First, job stress had negative correlation with hopes, growth mindset and happiness. Happiness had positive correlation with hopes and growth mindset. Second, the growth mindset moderated the relationship between job stress and happiness via the hope of office workers, which verified the conditional indirect effect of job stress on happiness.
