The Relationship between Core Self-Evaluations and Work and Family Satisfaction: The Mediating Role of Work-Family Conflict and Facilitation
Boyar, Scott L.; Mosley, Donald C., Jr.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v71 n2 p265-281 Oct 2007
This study examines the impact of work-family conflict and work-family facilitation on work and family outcomes and explores the influence of core self-evaluations (CSE) among these relationships. CSE is comprised of self-esteem, neuroticism, locus of control, and general self-efficacy. CSE was found to be negatively related to work interfering with family (WIF) and family interfering with work (FIW) conflicts, but not to work-to-family facilitation (W[right arrow]FF) or family-to-work facilitation (F[right arrow]WF). WIF and FIW negatively predicted work and family satisfaction, respectively. Additionally, W[right arrow]FF was significantly related to job satisfaction in the hypothesized direction, and F[right arrow]WF positively predicted family satisfaction. Job satisfaction negatively predicted intentions to quit. The research and practical implications, as well as limitations of this study are discussed.
