Supervisors are crucial sources of help for employees to balance their roles in work and non-work domains (Hammer et al., 2007). In particular, recent research has demonstrated that family supportive supervisors behaviors (FSSBs) (i.e. supervisors’ emotional and instrumental support, their actions as a role-model and their use of creative work-family management actions towards their subordinates; Hammer et al., 2009), improve work-family enrichment (Bagger & Li, 2014) and reduce work-family conflict (Odle-Dusseau et al., 2012). However, despite the growing evidence of the benefits associated with FSSBs, relatively little is known about the underlying processes and boundary conditions of how FSSBs influence employee outcomes.
