Chapter 18: Work–life balance, stress and well-being: moderating effects of psychological capital
Work–life balance can promote employee well-being and productivity, as well as organizational competitiveness, financial performance, and sustainability. This chapter discusses the role of work–life balance in alleviating stress and promoting well-being. Furthermore, psychological capital (PsyCap), a multidimensional positive psychological construct that includes hope, efficacy, resilience and optimism, is proposed as an additive and interactive resource that can influence stress and well-being, both directly, as well as indirectly through boosting the favorable impact of work–life balance and alleviating the harmful effects of stress on well-being. Potential mechanisms for the proposed linkages are discussed. Implications for research and practice end the chapter.
