WORK-LIFE BALANCE SATISFACTION FOR FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES FORCED TO WORK FROM HOME DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
The global pandemic brought on by the 2019 COVID virus severely disrupted people's personal and professional lives, necessitating the need for many employees to work remotely. Our study looks at how family-supportive supervisory behaviors (FSSB) affect in-role behaviors through happiness with work-life balance and psychological availability at work. This helps us figure out how the pandemic is affecting work and home. The findings suggest that satisfaction with work-life balance and psychological availability at work sequentially mediated the relationship between FSSBs and in-role behaviors. These findings are based on three waves of data and a sample of 179 full-time employees (32+ hours per week) forced to work 100% at home due to the pandemic. Additionally, psychological availability at work mediated the relationship between FSSB and work-life balance, and satisfaction with work-life balance mediated the relationship between satisfaction with work-life balance and in-role behaviours. Future researches as well as theoretical and practical ramifications are discussed.
