Zusammenfassung: In the light of major changes affecting the workplace, the present research investigates the interaction of life domains. Specifically, the studies included in this research comprehensively integrate conceptual advancements in the literature on the interaction of life domains. These advancements refer to the scope of the life domains considered, the different directions of interactions between the work and the private life domain, the inclusion of a positive perspective on the interplay, and the adoption of multi-time and multi-level research methodology. At the same time, the present research adopts new perspectives by investigating life domain conflict and enrichment from an international perspective, by integrating boundary management tactics and by considering the role of emotions at the workplace. Four different studies based on different international and domestic samples were conducted. The results of the first study demonstrate that life domain enrichment plays an important role for international assignees and contributes to the prediction of important outcomes beyond what is contributed by life domain conflict. Using a large international sample, the second study underlines the need to take cultural value dimensions into account when examining the interplay of life domains. This study indicates that Individualism/Collectivism moderate the relationship between life domain conflict and satisfaction outcomes, such that the relationship is stronger in cultures high on Individualism. In the third study, the impact of boundary management tactics for the interplay of different life domains is shown for a sample of expatriates. Specifically, the third study demonstrates that permeability and flexibility of life domains are associated with life domain conflict and enrichment. Finally, the fourth study adopts a longitudinal research design using a weekly diary approach. This study indicates that daily affective events and mood predict life domain conflict and enrichment over time. Taken together, the present studies demonstrate that the integration of conceptual advancements with recent trends at the workplace substantially contribute to our knowledge on life domain interactions and open promising avenues for future research. At the same time, this integration provides several implications for organizations and individuals for the successful management of the interplay of life domains in a modern workplace.
