A matter of love : exploring what enables work-family enrichment.

Kim, Sowon (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

This study provides understanding on the conditions that enables work - family enrichment. Using a sequential mixed - method approach (Creswell, 2003), we analyze qualitative and quantitative data. Based on our qualitative results from a total of 30 interviews with six dual - income couples with children in Spain we propose a model that is tested on 302 employees of an organization located in Chile. We find that there is a unique resource generated in the family role only which we define as “agape love.” The more individuals experience agape love, the enriched lives they have, under the condition that they are disposed to make a prosocial difference and have experienced enrichment in the past. Implications and future research directions are discussed
