  • Abstract The positive mood recalls someone remembering pleasant memories. It encourages individuals to do various actions actively, and affect job performance positively (Cacioppo & Gardner, 1999). However, in certain situation, the negative mood may increase individual’s job performance as well (George, 2011; George & Zhou, 2002, 2007). The main purpose of this study is to investigate whether employee’s daily positive and negative moods affect job performance. In addition, previous studies have rarely examined the roles of organizational practices on the mood-performance relationship. Thus, the present study also examines whether organizational practices (i.e., employee assistance programs; EAPs) moderate the relationship between daily moods and job performance. This study applied the experience sampling method to collect the data from 75 creative employees who work in 20 different companies. The data collected across two weeks (10 working days; Monday to Friday). Totally, there are 746 valid daily responses. The results of hierarchical linear modeling analyses showed that daily positive moods positively predict job performance and health-related EAP strengthens this relationship. Moreover, health-related EAP also weakens the negative relationship between daily negative moods and job performance. However, it is shown that life-related EAP weakens the relationship between daily positive moods and job performance.
