The Effect of Growth Mindset on Work-Family Enrichment in Information Age: Examining a Moderated-Mediation Model

Xuebing Wu
Abstract—With the development of the information age, the research of psychology is deepening day by day, and the understanding of people and their growth is becoming more and more profound. This study examines the effect of growth mindset on employee to their work-family enrichment using learning goal orientation as mediator and also looks at the moderating role of job complexity. Results of 220 samples revealed that learning goal orientation mediated the influence of growth mindset on work-family enrichment. Furthermore, job complexity moderated the relationship between growth mindset and learning goal orientation. Researchers rarely study the relationship between the growth mindset and work-family enrichment. However, in the information age, people with growth mindset could get more work-family enrichment. On the basis of the findings, it can be concluded that learning goal orientation is a mediator in this relationship and the job complexity will enhance the effect of growth mindset on learning goal orientation.

Index Terms—Growth mindset, learning goal orientation, job complexity, work-family enrichment.
