Key concepts

Scholarcy highlights

  • Recent efforts to more fully understand the mechanisms through which work and family experiences and their cross-over effects influence well-being have stimulated the development of integrative models of the work-family interface
  • This line of research is represented by the model which Frone, Russell, and Cooper tested with a sample of U.S employees
  • We examine the cross-cultural generalizability of this model among married Hong Kong employees
  • Results of the analyses suggest that many of the relationships among work and family constructs are similar across the two cultures, but that the nature and effects of the cross-over between family and work domains on overall employee well-being may differ
  • Limitations of the study and implications of the findings for assisting employees integrate their work and family responsibilities as a source of competitive advantage are discussed
