    Abstract Workplace deviance is an important problem in organization management. Previous studies focused too much on the influence of various factors in the workplace and ignored the interference of family factors. We integrate emotional social function theory and emotional labor theory, and examine the effect of (in) congruence between work and family status on workplace deviance. Using longitudinal data and polynomial regression, we find that: (1) Emotional exhaustion is higher when work and family status are congruent; (2) In the case of work-family congruence, emotional exhaustion is higher when work and family status are aligned at a low level than when… More >

    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… More >

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.20, No.1, pp. 27-40, 2018, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2018.010734
    Abstract Work-related use of ICT (W_ICT) at home has been found to relate to important employee outcomes in their work and family lives. However, little is known about how individuals can actively apply strategies or tactics to utilize the advantages or reduce the disadvantages of W_ICT. In the current study, based on boundary theory, we examined the interaction effect of segmentation preference and boundary control in creating the boundary around W_ICT and its subsequent positive effect on individuals’ psychological detachment. Results based on a sample of 560 Chinese full-time employees showed that only for individuals with higher boundary control, segmentation preference… More >
