Abstract

In extant literature, considerable research has focused on the provoking effect of unfavorable work situations on counterproductive work behaviors (CWB) (i.e., abusive supervision→trigger CWB). Adopting the perspective of positive organizational scholarship and drawing on affective event theory (AET), this study examined the inhibitory effect of perceptions of favorable work situation on counterproductive work behaviors (i.e., uplifts affective events→affective well-being→inhibit CWB). Hierarchical linear modeling was used to test the hypotheses in a sample of 65 middle school teachers in China who completed daily diary method surveys over 15 consecutive working days, and got within-individual observations (level 1, N = 975) were nested at the between-individual observations (level 2, N = 65). Results suggested that, (1) Opportunities for professional development were negatively related to CWB, (2) Affective well-being was negatively related to CWB, and (3) Affective well-being partially mediated the relationship between opportunities for professional development and CWB. Further, (4) Taskcontingent conscientiousness negatively moderated the negative relationship between affective well-being and CWB. In the end, we discuss the implications of the findings for both theory and practice.
