A qualitative analysis of facilitating conditions for work-family enrichment
We investigated the conditions under which individuals experience work-family enrichment. We selected six dual-career couples based on their positive spillover scores (categorized as high / mid / low) and conducted multiple in-depth interviews for a total of thirty interviews. We discovered and classified organizational and home factors which contribute to resources obtained in the work and family domains and also identified a new resource exclusive to the family domain. We also found that motivation, boundary preference and precedent enrichment experience facilitate the enrichment process as the transfer of resources from one role to another role can be either conscious and intentional or unconscious and unintentional.
