OBJECTIVE We sought to determine if leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) modified the adverse relationship between high job demands and nonrestorative sleep (NRS). METHODS We conducted a multivariate logistic regression analysis among workers from the cross-sectional National Healthy Worksite Project (n = 4683) using self-report Likert-Scale data on psychological and physical demands of jobs, LTPA and general health in relation to NRS. RESULTS Not engaging in LTPA was associated with NRS for wo...

Abstract For many job seekers, organizational affiliation can act as a signal of their values and goals. According to theory of symbolic attraction (TSA), job seekers are attracted to organizations with symbolic images (i.e., organizational personality) that help them portray a certain type of social identity. However, studies have found mixed support for TSA and this may be attributed to a lack of a broad and theoretically-based taxonomy of organizational personality. As such, we drew on multip...

Work-family researchers have widely accepted Greenhaus and Beutell’s (1985) conceptualization of work-family conflict (WFC), but no such consensus has been reached regarding a standard operationalization. There are many existing WFC scales, yet no systematic comparison and understanding of potential overlap across those scales. We conduct two investigations of four existing WFC scales that differ in multiple characteristics (i.e., content domain, number of items, response scale). Results from st...
For those who commute to and from work on a daily basis, this is an activity that requires attention to both what one is doing and the environment, in order for the commute to be done safely. Although research has shown that work can spill over into home and other nonwork domains, little attention has been paid to the impact that work may have on the transition time between one's work and nonwork domains. The present study sought to examine the relationship between end-of-day job strain and comm...

Eldercare demands (ECD) may result in stress when finite resources needed to fulfill life roles (i.e., family, work) become scarce. ECD may be acquired, continue over time, or be relinquished. They...

Over the next two decades, many countries, including the USA, will experience an unprecedented and seismic demographic transition as their older adult populations grow, both in number and as a proportion of the overall population. During this time, the number of working adults with eldercare responsibilities will grow substantially, posing a threat to the well-being and economic stability of both workers and their organizations. This phenomenon is a long anticipated symptom of the greater “elder...

ABSTRACTThe stress of feeling rushed and busy are contemporary facts of life as evidenced by research on time pressure and overload. This is explained by conservation of resources theory which posits that when life demands (i.e. paid work, home/family work) excessively drain time and energy resources, stress can result. The purpose of this study was to examine working mothers as a population at risk for such stress, because in addition to paid work roles, most face a heavy second shift (i.e. hom...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined how work and family demands affect depressive symptoms, and the mediating roles of work-to-family conflict and family-to-work conflict in a sample of correctional supervisors. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, correctional supervisors working in a Northeastern state (n = 156) participated in an online survey. Structural equation modeling was used to examine direct and indirect effects between study variables. RESULTS: Amount of overtime hours worked signific...
