There is little research that examines the reason for existence of the relationship between personality and enrichment. Our study fills this gap. Multiple life roles create different expectations from individuals, which impact inter-role enrichment. Glass ceiling beliefs (GCB) are important stressors of work life that often create negative spillovers. The personality dispositions tend to influence the way an individual handles the GCB. Therefore, there is a need to study the impact of personality in this context. To the best of our knowledge, this study is perhaps the first to examine these relationships. Moderation regression technique is used to analyze the primary data collected from 300 respondents. The results suggest a strong relationship between personality and work-family enrichment and family work enrichment. The results also support the existence of a moderating effect of GCB on these relationships.

The implication of the findings for practitioners and suggestions for future research are discussed.
