New Learnings About the Process of Enrichment

  • Jennifer Shein
  • Charles P. Chen


This chapter will present new findings that emerged about the process of work-family enrichment, which help to elucidate aspects of the construct that were proposed by Greenhaus and Powell (2006), yet were not proven empirically. Specifically, the chapter will begin by explaining a new process that emerged empirically that was not previously discussed in the literature: the feedback phenomenon, briefly introduced in Chapter Four. It will continue with the presentation of reasons offered by participants for having transferred resources accrued in Role A to Role B (work or family). It will also present trends around the consciousness of the transfer of resources; that is, whether resources were transferred from one role to another consciously or unconsciously, and under what conditions a conscious transfer was more or less likely.
