A CROSS-CULTURAL EXPLORATION OF EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND IN-GROUP COLLECTIVISM AS JOINT MODERATORS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL STRAIN -- AFFECTIVE ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT RELATIONSHIPS

We develop a framework to study the effects of emotional support in the relationship between psychological strain and affective organizational commitment in different cultural contexts. Based on the job demands-resources model and conservation of resources theory, we hypothesize that employees’ emotional support and in-group collectivism orientation jointly moderate the relationship between psychological strain and affective organizational commitment. We tested the hypothesis on a sample of 2702 respondents from eight different countries. The results highlight the roles of emotional support and in-group collectivism in employees’ responses to psychological strain.
