The mediating effect of family-work enrichment in the influence of community embeddedness on turnover intention and work engagement
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of community embeddedness, which is one of the subfactor of job embeddedness, on turnover intention and work engagement. Specifically, this study investigated the influence of community embeddedness on turnover intention and work engagement, and the mediating effect of family-work enrichment in these relationships. Self-reported survey data were obtained from 276 employees from various organizations in Korea. The results showed that community embeddedness and family-work enrichment were negatively related with turnover intention and positively related with work engagement. And community embeddedness was positively related with family-work enrichment. Finally, the relationship between community embeddedness and turnover intention, and the relationship between community embeddedness and work engagement were partially mediated by family-work enrichment. Implications, limitations of this study, and suggestions for the future research were discussed on the basis of the results.
