Why and When FSSB Discourages Work Interference with Family: A Resource-Based Perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Drawing from the Conservation of Resources (COR) theory, we examined both the mediating and moderating roles of job crafting and family-role overload respectively in the relationship between Family Supportive Supervisor Behaviors and employee work interference with family (WIF.) In a three-wave field study involving 147 employees, our results showed that FSSB at Time 1 was positively associated with employee job crafting at Time 2, which in turn resulted in reduced levels of WIF at Time 3. Furthermore, our results also revealed a first- stage moderated mediation pattern whereby family-role overload moderated the mediating effect of job crafting, such that the effect of FSSB on job crafting was more pronounced when family-role overload is high rather than low. We highlight the implications these findings for both researchers and practitioners.
