Testing the psychometric properties of the short work–family enrichment scale on underrepresented samples

Abstract The psychometric properties of the new short version of the work–family enrichment scale were tested on two underrepresented samples: (1) Māori employees, the indigenous people of New Zealand and (2) Sri Lankan employees. Both groups have not been well explored in the work–family field. We examine the measurement properties of the short measure for work–family and family–work enrichment and using structural equation modeling, investigate its associations with toward emotional exhaustion and stress (sample 1 n = 215) and emotional exhaustion and cynicism (sample 2 n = 143). Results support the new measure and provide initial evidence of the beneficial impact of work and family roles in underexplored populations. This highlights greater universality and cross‐cultural validation.
