Demirer, Fatma Ece
This research aims to investigate the conditional indirect effect of techno-invasion as a job demand, supervisor support and co-worker support as job resources on physical and psychological wellbeing through emotional exhaustion whereby yoga is assessed as a moderator. In order to test the hypotheses proposed, survey data were collected from 353 employees working in various sectors including both yoga practitioners and non-practitioners and analyzed by using path analysis in SPSS AMOS. Based on the results, techno-invasion was positively related to emotional exhaustion and negatively related to physical wellbeing. The negative effect of supervisor support on emotional exhaustion was supported. Besides, the positive effects of supervisor support and co-worker support on physical and psychological wellbeing were supported, as well. The indirect effects of techno-invasion and supervisor support on physical and psychological wellbeing through emotional exhaustion were significant, whereas the indirect effect of co-worker support on physical and psychological wellbeing through emotional exhaustion was insignificant. The overall moderated mediation models testing the conditional indirect effect of techno-invasion on physical and psychological wellbeing were not supported, however they were found to be significant in the opposite direction of the proposed hypotheses. Yoga was found to strengthen the positive effect of techno-invasion on emotional exhaustion. Still, up to a certain level of techno-invasion, emotional exhaustion levels of yoga practitioners were lower than the emotional exhaustion levels of non-practitioners. Consequently, the present study provides several insightful results regarding emotional exhaustion and its relationships with its antecedents and consequences.
