The effects of job crafting and leader member exchange on the affective well-being of emerging adults in collegeKishna, Celina (2020-12)Relatively little research has been conducted on factors that affect the work life of emerging adults. Drawing from a primarily college sample (N = 194), this study investigates the relationships between leader member exchange (LMX), job crafting (JC) and job affective well-being. A simultaneous multiple regression demonstrated that several dimensions of JC were positively associated with job affective well-being. A multiple parallel mediation model conducted with JC as a mediator between LMX and job affective well-being. demonstrated that the increasing structural job resources component of JC was a partial mediator between LMX and job affective well-being. Future studies should include dyadic data from both employees and supervisors to improve research on job affective well-being.
