Peng Wang (2020) Reconsidering the costs and benefits of work engagement on work–Family interaction and turnover intention: the antecedents and outcomes, Community, Work & Family, 23:2, 224-246, DOI: 10.1080/13668803.2018.1492906

This study integrates the JD-R model and work–family interaction theories to examine the antecedents and consequences of work engagement components, including work attention and work absorption. Specifically, we assess the relationships between work–family climate for sacrifice, work–family climate for sharing, work attention, work absorption, work–family conflict, work–family affective enrichment and turnover intentions. We find that both work–family climate for sacrifice and work–family climate for sharing increase employees’ work attention, which in turn, relates to elevated work–family conflict and higher turnover intentions. However, work–family climate for sharing also relates to more work absorption and ultimately to higher work–family affective enrichment and fewer turnover intentions. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
