This study assessed whether part-time staff experienced flow at work. The sample consisted of part-staff of the City of Torrance Community Services Department, Recreation Division After School Club Program. The study assessed whether staff experienced flow and examined various subcomponents of flow.
A self-report survey consisting of a modified WOrk-Related Flow Inventory, the Satisfaction with Life Scale, and assessments of whether staff are given clear goals and objectives, and whether staff feel they have the resources needed for their programs. Results revealed that there we no significant differences between gender and some job positions and that entry level staff experienced flow at work more often than their supervisors. Staff who worked at elementary schools experienced flow at work more often than middle school staff. Staff who received feedback, shared ideas with co-workers, had applicable resources, and were satisfied with their lives experienced more flow at work. Results of this study indicate supervisors can increase flow experiences among their staff by providing clear feedback, facilitating communication among co-workers, and insuring their staff have adequate resources.
