Toward a Mediation Model of Employability Enhancement: A Study of Employee-Supervisor Pairs in the Building Sector
van der Heijden, Beatrice I. J. M.; Bakker, Arnold B.
Career Development Quarterly, v59 n3 p232-248 Mar 2011
This study examines whether jobs that enable competence development and a constructive leadership style enhance workers' employability or career potential through their assumed positive relationship with work-related flow (absorption, work enjoyment, and intrinsic work motivation). The authors conducted an explorative study with 303 pairs of employees and their direct supervisors working in a Dutch building company. Results indicate that self-ratings of learning value of the current job and transformational leadership have an indirect relationship with supervisor ratings of employability through work-related flow. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
