Human Resource Development Quarterly, v22 n2 p195-221 Sum 2011
Four dimensions of a process model for the formulation of employee work passion, derived from Zigarmi, Nimon, Houson, Witt, and Diehl (2009), were tested in a field setting. A total of 447 employees completed questionnaires that assessed the internal elements of the model in a corporate work environment. Data from the measurements of work affect, work cognition, job well-being, and work intention supported the hypothesized model. Structural equation modeling analyses indicated that a partial mediation model fitted best to the data. Implications for theory, practice, and future research directions are discussed.
