Práticas de conciliação e satisfação no trabalho: mediação da facilitação do trabalho na família
Palavras-chave:Facilitação social; Família; Satisfação no emprego
Este estudo investigou o efeito que a disponibilização de práticas conciliadoras do trabalho e da família por parte das organizações tem na satisfação que os trabalhadores experienciam com o seu trabalho; também analisou o papel que a facilitação do trabalho na família desempenha enquanto mediadora da relação entre estas variáveis. Os dados foram obtidos mediante a participação de 342 sujeitos, 171 casais, casados ou vivendo maritalmente, os quais responderam a um questionário. Os participantes estavam empregados em uma grande variedade de profissões e organizações. Os resultados suportam a hipótese de que a facilitação do trabalho na família medeia a relação entre as práticas de conciliação e a satisfação com o trabalho. Deste modo, os resultados salientam o papel importante que esta facilitação desempenha nas atitudes dos empregados perante as práticas organizacionais conciliadoras do trabalho e da família, apresentando, assim, uma explicação sobre o mecanismo por meio do qual as práticas de conciliação têm impacto positivo na satisfação dos empregados.
