Abstract

How does an organization motivate employees to walk in the same direction? The data from 179 employees was examined by using moderated multiple regression analysis based on SPSS. The family-friendly practices were taken as an independent variable and the employees’ subjective well-being as a dependent variable to explore their influence effect and mechanism. The conclusion of this article is as follows: (1) Family-friendly practices correlate significantly with the employees’ subjective well-being; (2) Employee cognitive factors, such as the norm of reciprocity and perceived organizational support, play a partial intermediary role in the impact of family-friendly practices on employees’ subjective well-being; (3) Employee emotional factors , such as emotional balance, also play a partial intermediary role in the impact of family-friendly practices on employees subjective well-being.
