Abstract

This study aimed to verify the structural relationship among organizational culture, work-life balance, wellbeing and depression. A total of 569 Korean employees were recruited. The measurement model and the structural model were verified and also the model applicability was examined through cross-validation across gender and age. The results show that organizational culture supporting work-life balance has positive effect on employees’ well-being and work-life balance whereas has negative effect on depression, and those effects are mediated by work-life balance. The results from the multi-group analysis showed that for both male and female employees in all age groups, organizational culture supporting work-life balance has significant effect on well-being, depression and work-life balance. In addition, it was verified that work-life balance significantly affects well-being and depression in all age groups regardless of gender.
