Subjective Well-Being among Female Migrant Workers: the Role of Social Support, Self-Efficacy and Organizational Commitment
Ai-Chun Chang, PhD Student, Kuo-Chung Huang, Professor

This study focused on the influences of social support (SS), self-efficacy (SE) and organizational commitment (OC) on subjective well-being (SWB) among female migrant workers in Taiwan. A questionnaire survey was conducted with 247 samples of Filipinos working in Taiwan. The findings empirically revealed that SS, SE and OC can positively affect SWB separately. It was found that OC is an important factor in improving SWB, because it plays a partial mediating role between SS and SWB, and between SE and SWB. SE was found to be a key factor in improving OC and SWB as it plays a complete mediating role between SS and OC, and between SS and SWB. In case when SS, SE and OC are considered simultaneously, SWB could be affected by SS indirectly via SE and OC. The findings provide a more comprehensive understanding of the psychological processes of factors affecting SWB among female migrant workers.
