Share on Facebook The average person spends about one-third of their waking hours at work, so it's not surprising that your job can have a significant impact on your health. While most research has studied the detrimental effects of job-related stress on health, your job can also provide important social, mental and physical health benefits, resulting in improved quality of life and enhanced well-being.

This paper presents results from a longitudinal field experiment examining the effect of another strategy for fostering perceptions of impact — engaging employees in regular reflection about how their work benefits others.
With a sample of professionals from multiple organizations, this longitudinal study examined the effect on job performance and work-life conflict of both positive and negative impact reflection.
Results show that negative impact reflection had a pronounced negative effect on job performance, but no effect on work-life conflict. Positive impact reflection had a weak positive effect on work-life conflict, but no significant effect on job performance.
The direction of effects seen in the no intervention condition mirrored that of the negative impact reflection condition, suggesting a possible buffering effect for positive impact reflection. This research provides empirical and theoretical contributions to the literatures on relational job design and task significance.
The purpose of this research is to test the effect of one such strategy — impact reflection. This research takes the view that some jobs naturally afford more opportunities for task significance, and that impact perceptions can be fostered by structurally enriching the task characteristics of workers.
More recently, however, job design researchers have adopted a social information processing perspective on task significance Salancik and Pfeffer, ; Zalesny and Ford, ; Pollack et al.
Studies of this approach — termed relational job design — have shown that impact perceptions are increased when employees have interpersonal contact with, or receive social information from, beneficiaries of their work e.
While recent studies adopting a social information processing perspective on task significance have provided important insights, they are subject at least two limitations addressed through the current research.
First, experimental research has focused primarily on the effect of interventions that help workers process information that comes from the beneficiaries of their work Grant et al.
However, given that it is not always practical to redesign jobs to provide contact with or information from beneficiaries Northcraft and Chase,it may be important to consider other strategies.
The fact that individuals may also process social information about existing social interactions Festinger, ; Salancik and Pfeffer, raises the possibility that engaging workers in reflection about impact may also affect task significance perceptions, and work outcomes. Reflection strengthens and lengthens the intensity of recollection of the event or action that is being recalled Usher and Bryant, Accordingly, events should become more salient when individuals reflect on them.
In both laboratory and field settings with undergraduate students, Grant and Dutton showed that encouraging individuals to reflect on the experience of helping others versus being helped by others improved their prosocial behavior 2 weeks later. However, the effect of impact reflection has not yet been tested in a professional field setting.
Second, as noted by Grant a and Grant and Duttonprevious research has primarily focused on outcomes associated with enhancing perceptions of positive impact without examining the potential effects of negative impact perceptions — judgments that work has a negative impact on others Grant and Campbell, In management literature, various studies indicate the positive impact of workplace spirituality on job satisfaction (Altaf & Awan, ; Gupta, Kumar & Singh, ), lower rate of absenteeism (Chawla &.
Spiritual well-being was related to job satisfaction even when the adverse workplace conditions of job frustration, work tension and victimization were present. The context of the findings with other research and theory are discussed, as are directions for future research.
