Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to clarify the day-to-day relationship between employee helping behavior and cognitive strain. A daily experience sampling method was adopted in order to collect data and to test the conceptual model. The current study collects 350 matched cases nested in 70 full-time workers over 5 consecutive workdays in mainland China. A multilevel structural equation model and hierarchical linear regression model were performed to analyze the data. Employee helping behavior was positively associated with cognitive strain. Both job control and perceived supervisor support buffered the positive relationship between employee helping behavior and cognitive strain. The moderating effect of perceived supervisor support was mediated by the moderating effect of job control.
