Flow at work was associated with optimal psychological outcomes in the organizational setting. However, previous studies have concentrated on work-related flow as an outcome rather than a catalyst of positive psychological functioning. Further, the differential impact of work-related flow domains on key outcomes was still uncharted. To address this empirical gap, the current investigation examined work-related flow dimensions as differential predictors of anxiety, life satisfaction, and work longevity among 133 Filipino guidance counselors. The results of hierarchical regression analyses have shown that work enjoyment served as a robust predictor of anxiety, life satisfaction and work longevity even after controlling for the influence of relevant demographic variables. Absorption positively predicted work longevity. However, intrinsic work motivation did not predict any outcome. Discussion points revolved around the unique theoretical contributions of the current study to the foregoing work-related flow theory and concrete practical implications to emphasize the psychological benefits of work-flow especially in the field of counseling.
