Job Characteristics and Job Engagement: A Two-Wave Study among Library Employees
Journal of Library Administration
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether coworker support moderates the relationship between role stressors and job engagement among library employees. Library employees (n = 96) were surveyed over two time periods to assess these relationships. As predicted, job engagement at time 1 was significantly related to job engagement at time 2. As hypothesized, coworker support was found to buffer the effect of role ambiguity on job engagement. Job engagement was not as impacted for employees who had supportive coworkers in the face of ambiguity compared to those who did not feel supported by their colleagues.
