Abstract: This dissertation focuses on how mismatches between employees’ circadian preferences and their social environment arise at and matter for employees’ larger work-nonwork interface. Theoretically, this dissertation combines the core tenets of person-environment fit theory with the two-process model of sleep regulation to explain that circadian mismatches represent indicators of (mis-)fit and thus matter for employees’ well-being and recovery processes. Empirically, the three studies included in this dissertation demonstrated that week-level, day-level, and person-level circadian mismatches matter directly or as boundary conditions for the transition from nonwork to work and the transition from work to nonwork. At the same time, the studies underscored that work and nonwork domains are reciprocally connected, hinting at paradoxical relationships between both domains. Thereby, this dissertation moves research forward, first, with respect to taking circadian processes seriously in the organizational sciences and, second, with respect to better understanding how employees’ work and nonwork domains are connected.
