"This Virtual Issue of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology (JOOP) contains ten papers which have been published on the work-family interface in this journal in the past eight years. Several other articles on this topic have also been published in this period in JOOP, but because these comprised a special issue of the journal (2008, 81, 3) they are not included in this Virtual Issue..."

A multi‐level perspective on the synergies between work and family Journal Article

Edited by: Joseph G. Grzywacz, Dawn S. Carlson, K. Michele Kacmar, Julie Holliday Wayne

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317906X163081
  • Published Date: December 31, 2010

In this paper we lay the conceptual foundation for work‐family facilitation. Work‐family facilitation is a process representing the synergies between the domains of work and family. We formally define facilitation as the extent to which an individual's engagement in one social system, such as work or family, contributes to growth in another social system. We develop the process through which facilitation occurs, provide a model and case...

Job demands, work‐family conflict, and emotional exhaustion in police officers: A longitudinal test of competing theories Journal Article

Edited by: Garry B. Hall, Maureen F. Dollard, Michelle R. Tuckey, Anthony H. Winefield, Briony M. Thompson

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317908X401723
  • Published Date: December 24, 2010

We propose and test a comprehensive theory designed to explain seemingly contradictory relations between job demands, emotional exhaustion, and work‐family conflict (WFC) reported in the literature. Using job demands‐resources theory, effort‐recovery theory, and personal resources theory we hypothesized that job demands would spillover to emotional exhaustion as mediated by WFC (causality model), and alternatively that job demands would...

Interface between work and family: A longitudinal individual and crossover perspective Journal Article

Edited by: Ulla Kinnunen, Taru Feldt, Saija Mauno, Johanna Rantanen

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317908X399420
  • Published Date: December 24, 2010

This study assessed longitudinal individual and crossover relationships between work‐family conflict and well‐being in the domains of work (job satisfaction) and family (parental distress) in a sample of 239 dual‐earner couples. The results revealed only longitudinal individual effects over a 1‐year period. First, high family‐to‐work conflict (WFC) at Time 1 was related to a high level of work‐to‐family conflict (WFC) 1 year later in both...

Work and family domain stressors and support: Within‐ and cross‐domain influences on work–family conflict Journal Article

Edited by: Dora M. Luk, Margaret A. Shaffer

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317905X26741
  • Published Date: January 10, 2011

The purpose of this study is to examine the within‐ and cross‐domain influences of work and family domain stressors and support on two forms of work–family conflict (i.e. WIF: work interference with family, and FIW: family interference with work). To test our hypotheses, we collected multi‐source data from 248 Hong Kong employees and their spouses. Among the proposed work domain antecedents of WIF, time commitment and work role...

Does work–family conflict mediate the relationship between work–family culture and self‐reported distress? Evidence from five Finnish organizations Journal Article

Edited by: Saija Mauno, Ulla Kinnunen, Mervi Pyykkö

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317905X37082
  • Published Date: January 10, 2011

This study examined whether perceived work–family conflict would function as a mediator in the link between work–family culture perceptions and self‐reported distress. Data were obtained from employees (N=1,297) of five Finnish organizations representing both the public (local social and health care, school, and labour departments) and the private sectors (paper mill, IT company). The results showed that perceived work–family conflict functioned as a...

Seeking the perfect balance: Perfectionism and work–family conflict Journal Article

Edited by: Jacqueline K. Mitchelson

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317908X314874
  • Published Date: December 24, 2010

This study considers the relationship between perfectionism and perceptions of work–family conflict. A situational component to perfectionism was found, with higher standards and a higher perceived discrepancy between standards and performance at home versus at work. Findings suggest perfectionism predicts work–family conflict, beyond the effects of the Big Five, trait affectivity and achievement. Further, findings indicate those with...

Understanding childcare satisfaction and its effect on workplace outcomes: The convenience factor and the mediating role of work‐family conflict Journal Article

Edited by: Stephanie C. Payne, Allison L. Cook, Ismael Diaz

  • DOI: 10.1111/j.2044-8325.2011.02026.x
  • Published Date: February 3, 2011

Building on Hobfoll's (1989, 2001) conservation of resources theory, we posit childcare is an essential resource to working parents. In addition to previously demonstrated childcare satisfaction (CCS) dimensions, we propose and demonstrate empirical support for a convenience dimension of CCS. Satisfaction with caregiver convenience refers to a parent's evaluation of the caregiver's location and availability. We hypothesize that time‐related...

Valuing money more than people: The effects of materialism on work–family conflict Journal Article

Edited by: Mark D. Promislo, John R. Deckop, Robert A. Giacalone, Carole L. Jurkiewicz

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317909X480167
  • Published Date: February 1, 2011

Can valuing money and material possessions lead to conflict between work and family? In this paper, we build on Carlson and Kacmar's call for more research on personal values in the context of the work–family interface. In a field study, we examined the relationship between materialism and two components of work–family conflict: work interference with family (WIF) and family interference with work (FIW). Results supported our main...

Implementing family‐friendly employment practices in banking industry: Evidences from some African and Asian countries Journal Article

Edited by: Peng Wang, John J. Lawler, Kan Shi

  • DOI: 10.1348/096317910X525363
  • Published Date: April 8, 2011

We examined the effects of family‐friendly policies (child‐care benefits and work flexibility benefits) on organizational commitment and work–family conflict in four developing countries: China, India, Kenya, and Thailand. We also explored the boundary condition (e.g., perceived importance of family‐friendly programmes) under which family‐friendly policies are more (or less) effective in influencing organizational commitment and reducing...

Your work is interfering with our life! The influence of a significant other on employee job search activity Journal Article

Edited by: Marla Baskerville Watkins, Run Ren, Wendy R. Boswell, Elizabeth E. Umphress, María del Carmen Triana, Asghar Zardkoohi

  • DOI: 10.1111/j.2044-8325.2011.02050.x
  • Published Date: December 15, 2011

This research draws on family systems theory to examine the influence of the significant other on employees’ job search behaviours. Data from 102 matched pairs of employees and their significant others showed that significant others’ perception of the employee's work‐to‐family conflict was positively related to the employee's job search activity after controlling for employee self‐reported work‐to‐family conflict. Contributions and...
