Work engagement and job burnout? Roles of regulatory foci, supervisors’ organizational embodiment and psychological ownership

Abstract

The study explores the impact of promotion focus/prevention focus on the work engagement/job burnout of international tourist hotel employees, and in the meantime compare the influence of promotion focus and prevention focus. Moreover, the study explores as well whether supervisors’ organizational embodiment and psychological ownership serves as moderators in the relationship between promotion focus/prevention focus and work engagement/job burnout of international tourist hotel employees. Based on an analysis of 716 employees of international tourist hotel, this study found promotion focus and prevention focus were positively related to work engagement and job burnout; promotion focus and prevention focus were negatively related to work engagement and job burnout. Moreover, prevention focus accounted for more variance in work engagement and job burnout than did that of promotion focus. Psychological ownership moderates the relationship between regulatory foci and work engagement. Psychological ownership also moderates the relationship between regulatory foci and job burnout.
