Abstract

We investigated whether career calling (calling) operated as a moderator between intensified job demands and job performance, which was measured via task performance (TP) and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). The study was based on one-year follow-up data collected among Finnish teachers (n = 507). The results showed that the moderator effects varied by job demands. Under increased jobrelated planning and decision-making demands, employees with high calling reported improved TP and OCB compared to employees with low calling. However, under increased time pressures and multitasking demands, employees with high calling reported impaired TP and OCB compared to employees with low calling. These results can be utilized in stress and performance management interventions.
