We are glad to introduce our readers to new issue of Organizational Psychology Journal.
The current issue starts from the article «Work–life balance in Russian production enterprise employees» by A. Mospan, E. Osin, T. Ivanova, E. Rasskazova, V. Bobrov (International Laboratory of Positive Psychology of Personality and Motivation, HSE). The article presents a theoretical analysis of approaches to work– life balance research and findings of an empirical study of this construct in a large sample of employees of a Russian production enterprise situated in six regions of the country. Using confirmatory factor analysis, authors developed 11 short scales reflecting different types of work–life relationship (balance, conflict, negative spillover, positive spillover, compensation, independence). This research opens up that work–life balance was more positively evaluated by females, older respondents, those with higher education and position, and higher family income. A balanced distribution of priorities and efforts was an essential predictor of well–being in working males. Working females reported higher well–being when they viewed work as a life priority, but invested efforts in family and their own health.
