Additionally, the research also identified a noteworthy and statistically significant moderating impact of social support on the association between supervisor behavior and employees' psychological well-being, as well as work-life balance and employees' psychological well-being. This study makes a significant contribution to the existing body of knowledge by presenting a comprehensive research model that incorporates various personal and organizational factors that have the potential to influence an employee's psychological well-being. Furthermore, it is worth noting that certain factors, namely job security, organizational climate, and organizational identification, have not received adequate attention in previous research regarding their impact on employees' psychological well-being.
