This study of United States (US) and Hong Kong (HK) employees explores the linkages among networking behavior, instrumental and expressive resources received, career satisfaction, and work-to-family facilitation. Our results indicate that (1) three types of networking behavior were differentially linked to employees’ receipt of instrumental versus expressive network resources, with notable US-HK differences, (2) participation in professional activities was not useful for generating network resources in either society, and (3) receipt of instrumental network resources was related to career satisfaction and work-to-family facilitation in both the US and HK.
