An Investigation on the Self-Level Differences in the Relationships of Work-Family Conflict and Stress among Hospitality Employees


Denver, Colorado USA


The field survey was conducted to test the hypothesized moderating role of chronic self regulatory focus on the relationships between work – family conflict (WFC) and challenge/hindrance stress. 287 hotel employees provided valid responses, showing that chronic promotion-focused individuals perceive WFC as challenge stressors while chronic prevention-focused individuals view WFC as hindrance stressors. The results suggest implications for increasing the effectiveness of family-friendly policies and management.
