Summary

This study examines the relationship between family supportive supervisor behavior (FSSB), employee engagement, and employee performance. Using a sample of 654 employees and 134 managers, results suggest that engagement mediated the relationship between FSSB and performance. Results also suggest that family supportive organizational culture moderated the relationship between FSSB and engagement. The study concludes that the findings have implications for practices regarding flexible work arrangement and other family supportive policies.
