A daily diary study of work-life balance: Utilizing a daily process model


Full text not available from this repository.


We extend the daily dairy wellbeing literature by unravelling daily work and family factors and their influence on employee wellbeing in a sample of managers and business owners. Four days diary data was collected from 113 respondents and analysed using multi-level statistical analysis. Daily family-work conflict positively influenced daily job burnout, while daily autonomy satisfaction reduced burnout. Daily family-work enrichment positively influenced daily work engagement, as did daily needs satisfaction (autonomy, competence, and relatedness) and daily perceived autonomous support. Furthermore, daily burnout reduced work-life balance and this was fully mediated by daily work-family conflict. In addition, daily engagement increased work-life balance and this was partially mediated by daily work-family enrichment. The implications for researching daily wellbeing of employees are discussed.
