Relationship between perceived partner responsiveness and work engagement

Doğru, Onur Cem
The main area of exploration is the work life for adults and the extent to which adults are engaged in their works, determines their level of productiveness and mastery. One of the important factors related to work engagement is perceived partner responsiveness, which is defined as one’s perception of his/her partner as understanding, validating, and caring. Motivated by the lifespan development perspective of the attachment theory, it was aimed to examine the relation between work engagement and perceived partner responsiveness in the current study. It was hypothesized that perceived partner responsiveness will be positively related to participants’ work engagement behaviors on the next day. This hypothesis is tested with dual earner married couples in a Turkish sample. Three weeks of daily dyadic data is analyzed in a multilevel model for the current hypothesis where the days are nested under couples. The results showed that perceived partner responsiveness is beneficial on next day’s work engagement only for men but not for women. Moreover, the variables for the same day were related to each other for both genders but work engagement and next day’s perceived partner responsiveness is not significantly related for neither of genders.
