Employees Who Are Engaged In Their Work Have Happier Home Life
ScienceDaily (Aug. 25, 2009) _ã” A Kansas State University study shows that invigorated and dedicated employees carry over their positive work experiences for a happier home life.
K-State psychology researchers studied how positive work experiences extend into family life and facilitate family interactions. They found that employees who are engaged in their work, which includes higher levels of vigor, more dedication and absorption in daily activities, have better moods and more satisfaction at home.
The K-State research group included Clive Fullagar, professor of psychology; Satoris Culbertson, assistant professor of psychology; and Maura Mills, graduate student in psychology, Manhattan. They presented the research in April at the annual conference for Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology in New Orleans.
