Urfi Khalid

Abstract


This study explores the difference in Work-Family conflict
and Family Work Conflict as experienced by the genders and different
family systems. This is a dilemma of today when dual-earner families
are becoming the need of the hour. The phenomenon often translates
into a difficult effort to combine work and family and maintain a
balance between these two domains. The study worked with two
hypotheses. Hypothesis 1: there will be significant difference in Work
Family Conflict or Family Work Conflict on gender base. Hypothesis
2: that the Work Family Conflict or Family Work Conflict is
experienced strongly in joint families as compared to nuclear families.
The sample consisted of 215 respondents enrolled in the MBA program.
Netemeyer, Boles, and McMurrian’s, (1996) questionnaire that
measures this conflict was used. A demographic form asking about the
gender and family system was also included. The data collected was
analyzed using T-Test. Results obtained negated both the hypotheses.
Culture emerged as the main determinant factor for correlating the
two domains of adult life i.e. Work and Family
