Abstract

This study has made focus on the moderating effect of emotional exhaustion on the well-being of employees or small business owners at workplace. It explores the relationship between entrepreneurial commitment, work-family conflict and employee well-being and determines whether the relationship between these core variables is direct or is better explained with the mediating effect of emotional exhaustion. The study also includes secondary data from a research reporting on the moderating effect of emotional exhaustion on the relationship of EC, WFC and MW. The selected study also includes perceived stress as a key moderator in the proposed relationship. Hence, along with emotional exhaustion, focus was also diverted to perceived stress as a moderator variable in the link between entrepreneurial commitment, work-family conflict and emotional exhaustion as it explained the link more prominently than emotional exhaustion. However, it is critical to note that emotional exhaustion and perceived stress both explained the negative association between the variables of EC, WFC and MW significantly. Hypotheses developed in the study were supported with the findings of the questionnaire analysis of the data collected from a sample of around 350 working women from mainland China.
