Work-family enrichment is a positive transfer by both men and women from the home<br>domain's job experience. The study involved 129 couples with a broad age range measured at two measurement occasions<br>spaced three months apart. The design was built on the Work-Home Resources and Spillover-Crossover models. The<br>analyses applied in this study were based on Actor–Partner Interdependence Models and extended Common Fate Models.<br>Psychological capital is a predictor of the interpersonal (between partners) and intrapersonal (within the self) level for<br>WFE in the models conducted on dyadic data. Furthermore, shared work-family enrichment predicted shared<br>psychological capital from both partners. Thus, personal resources predicted work-family enrichment three months later.<br>Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.</p> 2020-11-09T17:41:32+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Psihologia Resurselor Umane The Path from Leader-Member Exchange to Citizenship: An Empirical Test of Self-Determination as a Linchpin 2020-11-22T23:06:39+02:00 Anata Flavia Ionescu Dragos Iliescu <p>In response to calls to uncover the mechanisms whereby leadership influences subordinate outcomes, the present study<br>proposes and tests a path from leader-member exchange (LMX) to subordinate organizational citizenship behaviors<br>(OCBs) through work motivation as conceptualized by self-determination theory (SDT). We conducted a survey study<br>on a Romanian sample of 338 subordinates nested under 59 leaders from a large variety of organizational contexts. Our<br>findings at the within-group level offer limited support for the incremental validity of autonomous motivation and<br>amotivation, but suggest controlled motivation—and, through it, LMX—has a negative incremental contribution to both<br>OCB targeted at co-workers and OCB targeted at the organization. None of the paths was supported at group level.<br>Results thus suggest that leaders should be wary of the consequences of high LMX—despite its established overall<br>positive influence on OCB, LMX may also undermine OCB to the extent to which it enhances controlled motivation.</p> 2020-11-09T17:46:45+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Psihologia Resurselor Umane Fulfilled Expectations about Leaders Predict Engagement through LMX 2020-11-22T23:06:14+02:00 Andreea Petrus <p>Drawing on the bandwidth-fidelity principle (Cronbach &amp; Glaser, 1957), this paper challenges the use of broad Implicit<br>Leadership Theories (ILTs) domains in predicting organizational outcomes (i.e., prototypic ILTs and anti-prototypic<br>ILTs) and provides preliminary arguments for examining ILTs narrow traits (e.g., sensitivity, intelligence) effects on<br>LMX and consequently on work engagement. Specifically, using polynomial regression and response surface<br>methodology, I examined the effects of followers’ ideal-actual ILTs congruence on LMX. Additionally, using the block<br>variable approach, I tested the mediation effects of LMX on the relationship between ideal-actual ILTs congruence and<br>work engagement, on a sample of 68 employees. The results showed that followers’ fulfilled expectations about<br>sensitivity and tyranny had linear effects on LMX, indicating the generalized benefits for leaders to be high on sensitivity<br>and low on tyranny to enhance followers’ LMX. Intelligence, dedication, dynamism, and masculinity had non-linear<br>effects, revealing that fulfilling followers’ expectations are the best option for leaders to develop high-quality<br>relationships with their followers. The mediation hypothesis received partly support, suggesting that additional<br>mechanisms can explain the relationship between followers’ ideal-actual ILTs congruence and work engagement.</p> 2020-11-09T17:53:19+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Psihologia Resurselor Umane Workplace Bullying and Turnover Intention. The Role of Protective versus Vulnerable Personality Factors 2020-11-23T18:01:08+02:00 Andreea Butucescu Miruna Mutu Dragos Iliescu <p>This study investigates the vulnerability/protection effects of the Big Five personality traits (extraversion, openness, agreeability, conscientiousness, neuroticism) on the relationship between bullying and turnover intention. Specifically, based on the assumption of Vulnerability-Stress Model we propose that bullying will predict turnover intention and that this relationship will increase or decrease in accordance with one’s level of certain personality traits. We collected a Convenience sample of 460 employees. Results of the moderation analysis suggests that bullied employees, as an attempt to coping are more inclined to turnover intentions, as preceded suggested by literature. Furthermore, out of all 5 factors, solely extraversion and agreeableness acts like a protective factor.</p> 2020-11-09T18:08:01+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Psihologia Resurselor Umane Equal, but so much different: examining socio-demographic differences of the employees in relation to organizational commitment, burnout and intention to leave 2020-11-22T23:05:23+02:00 Lavinia Tanculescu-Popa <p>The current study was conducted among employees in various industries and sectors (N = 412) in Romania and examined<br>how four socio-demographic groups differ with regards to three main organizational outcomes: organizational<br>commitment, burnout and intention to leave. Multivariate analysis of variance showed that statistically significant<br>differences exist between socio-demographic groups based on hierarchical level, sector of the employer, generation and<br>perceived income level. Additionally, significant differences were shown at the dependent variables levels for certain<br>socio-demographic groups. One of the most expected set of results relate to the differences between generations in terms<br>of all variables included in the study. Like the other findings, but most of it, in a complete form, this highlight could help<br>organizations in their endevour to bridge the generational gap and propose a tailored organizational employee value<br>proposition to their prospective targets.</p> 2020-11-09T18:13:01+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Psihologia Resurselor Umane
