Abstract

Occupational well-being is optimal psychological functioning and experience in the workplace. This study examined the role of opportunities for career development as a mechanism that links supervisor’s transformational leadership and subordinates’ occupational well-being manifested by work engagement. Specifically, drawing on conservation of resources theory (COR), we developed a dual pathway model in which opportunities for promotion and for professional development were posited as two important mediators in the relationship between transformational leadership and work engagement. The hypotheses were tested with a sample of 215 Chinese civil servants. The results of structural equation modeling showed that a supervisor’s transformational leadership was positively related to subordinates’ work engagement. This association was partially mediated by opportunities for professional development and not mediated by opportunities for promotion. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
