Aggressiveness and Perceived Marital Quality: The Moderating Role of Family-Supportive Work Climate.Military Psychology
AbstractWe examined the role of contextualized, group-level ratings of a family-supportive work climate on the link between individuals’ aggressiveness and marital quality in a sample of 1,604 married male active duty soldiers from brigades in the southeastern United States. Results of multilevel analyses showed that group-level ratings of a family-supportive work climate moderated the negative individual-level link between aggressiveness and marital quality. Findings suggest that the negative association between aggressiveness and perceived marital quality may be influenced by how well the organization fosters a climate that is supportive of married soldiers’ family responsibilities. Implications for work climate research and organizational policy in the military are discussed.
