What is it about?

The present study investigates the impact of servant leadership as perceived by followers on their work-to-family enrichment (WFE) by focusing on the mediating role of organizational identifi cation and the moderating role of work climate for sharing family concerns. The results from a fi eld survey of 230 married managers in China provide full support for our hypotheses, indicating that perceived servant leadership is positively related to WFE; this relationship is also mediated by organizational identifi cation. In addition, work climate for sharing family concerns attenuates the effects of servant leadership on organizational identification and WFE. The theoretical and managerial implications of these fi ndings are discussed.
