Communication,Recreation,and Work Performance:Mediating Effects of Social Support and Moderating Effects of Training
【摘要】：How to improve employees' work performance is of great importance for organizational effectiveness. This paper investigated the issue of performance improvement from the perspectives of communication and recreation involvements, and further explored the underlying mechanism and boundaries, with a sample of 1182 employees from 105 firms in labor-intensive industries in China. Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) results indicated that the more coworkers employees frequently communicated with, the better their performance became. Employees in firms setting up recreation organizations or full-time staffs responsible for organizing recreation activities achieved better performance as well. Employees' perceived social support mediated the above relationships. In addition, training practices moderated the relationships between social support and performance such that the relationships became weaker at relatively high level of training. I discuss implications of the research and future directions to end the paper.
