  • The Relative and Respective Effects of Social Support on Life-Domain Interactions   Order a copy of this article
    by Felix Ballesteros Leiva, Sylvie St-Onge, Samba Deme 
    Abstract: Based upon the conservation of resource theory, this study investigates the respective and relative effects of various social support sources on employees perceptions regarding the conflicts and enrichments they experienced between their work-life (WL) and personal life (PL) in both directions (WL PL and PL WL). Our survey has 798 employee respondents. Concerning their life-domain conflicts, results show that variance in their WL PL conflicts is accounted for by sources of support in the workplace, in the following order: organisation, supervisor, and co-workers. Variance in their PL WL conflicts is explained, in order, by the support received from family and friends and the organisation. Concerning their life-domain enrichments, results show that the support received from their supervisor accounts for the variance in WL PL and PL WL enrichments. In contrast, the one obtained from family and friends only explains the variance in PL WL enrichment. We discuss the theoretical and managerial implications of these results.
    Keywords: social support; life domains; professional life; personal life; work-family conflicts and enrichments.
