Theoretical Background 43/13/2014 Effort-Recovery (Meijman & Mulder, 1998) • Investing effort at work is unavoidable, causing acute load reactions • When off-job activities don’t occupy the same type of resources needed for work, then these activities possess a recovery function Conservation of Resources (Hobfoll, 2002) • People strive to obtain, retain, protect, and build personal resources • People attempt to restore their resource during after-work hours Need for Recovery (NFR) (Demerouti et al., 2009) • Sense of urgency that people feel to take a break from job demands when personal resources are exhausted • Indicates an impaired state of well-being Well-being (Shirom, 2004; Sonnentag, 2001) • Vigor: cognitive liveliness & physical strength • External Recovery: the extent to which people restore their personal resources to pre-stressor levels during off-work time/activities
Method & Sample • Trait Questionnaire to establish baseline levels • Daily Questionnaire to assess day levels • Day Reconstruction Method (DRM) to assess well-being at bedtime and daily need for recovery (Kahneman et al., 2004) Ecologically valid method of accounting for daily intrapersonal variation Closer examination of momentary constructs experienced at the task level • 79 participants • 351 days reconstructed • 2,556 logged activities overall • Mean age: 32.01 (SD = 11.19) • Working hours, weekly average: 37.58 (SD = 13) 53/13/2014

Overview of Findings • High Daily Need for Recovery leads to less Time spent on Social off-job activities • Daily Need for Recovery and Time spent on Physical Activities interact to impact Daily Well-being at bedtime: 83/13/2014
Practical Implications I • The classification of social & physical activities along the “active vs. passive” spectrum only is not satisfactory • Not the activity, but the subjective experience of an activity matters: Vitality programs should be diverse in their offering and encourage employees to try out different activities in non- work time The ideographic and not the nomothetic approach could lead to diversity and high variety of options for off-time activities 93/13/2014
Practical Implications II • Current vitality programs provide means of external motivation: Beneficial to individuals already into the given activities Challenge: Reach out and Activate individuals internally motivated (pleasure) to participate in (a variety of) recovery activities • To illustrate: A HR-program encouraging employees to visit a local gym by providing membership discounts by default excludes non-gym- goers who prefer running outside or engaging in team-based sports • A suggestion: A HR-program should consider individual employee preferences and go beyond universal solutions: address employees’ needs and offer them an opportunity to improve their well-being 103/13/2014
Theoretical Implications • Findings confirm the general understanding of Business Ethics and CSR of Peter Ulrich – integrative economic ethics: The internal commitment of the members of an organization is key. The moral capacity of employees is the starting point of further ethical reflection, whereby the usual emphasis on externally given norms isn’t productive in the long run. 113/13/2014
