Abstract:
Much research has been compiled on how relationships at work affect job performance, motivation, and satisfaction. There has been very limited research, however, on whether or not relationships outside of work also affect these factors. This thesis will attempt to explore previous research findings and how they may relate to this topic. It will also delve into the findings of the primary research completed during this study, and will cover the results and conclusions this research brought about. Results indicate that people may act outside of their stereotypical need for affiliation role based on how socially fulfilled they are. Results also indicate that those who are emotionally overloaded by the number of relationships in their life may have lower job performance, satisfaction, and motivation. Also supported was the discovery that there is a curvilinear relationship to the number of relationships a person has outside of work and their job satisfaction. This thesis will cover all of these topics and findings and attempt to relate them in a practical manner to both people and organizations.
