dc.description.abstractThe present study investigated the effects of engaging in work-related in-commute activities (ICA) during the morning commute to work and the evening commute back home. The outcomes examined were strain-based family interference with work (FIW) and work interference with family (WIF) for the morning and evening commute respectively. Psychological detachment was also examined as a mediator between work-related ICA and the respective outcomes. Additionally, employees' segmentation preference was also proposed to be a moderating factor. Using the experience sampling method, 142 participants completed the daily surveys over a period of ten workdays. Results showed that for the morning commute, psychological detachment mediated the negative relationship between work-related ICA and strain-based FIW. Similar mediation effects of psychological detachment were found for the positive relationship between work-related ICA and strain-based WIF. Therefore, the findings suggest that work-related ICA is likely to be beneficial for the morning commute, but harmful during the evening commute. Segmentation preference was found to only moderate the indirect relationship between work-related ICA and strain-based WIF. Hence, this suggested that employees with a high segmentation preference were much more likely to experience strain-based WIF when they maintained a low level of psychological detachment during the evening commute.
