Description

This poster describes a research project that explored how discussing one's positive work events with responsive family members may contribute to greater perceptions of work-family enrichment in employees, and in turn, how greater perceptions of work-family enrichment may predict more positive work outcomes including higher job satisfaction, fewer turnover intentions, less worker burnout, and higher supervisor ratings of job performance. Results are based on survey data from 131 direct-support workers employed at a local non-profit organization providing community-based residential services to the intellectually disabled. The results, along with the practical and theoretical implications of the research will be discussed.
