Muhammadi Sabra Nadeem, Qaisar Abbas

Abstract


The study was aimed to explore the relationship between work life conflict and job satisfaction in Pakistan. We found that job satisfaction is significantly negatively correlated with work to family interference and family to work interference. Job satisfaction is also found to be negatively related with stress in our research. However, the correlation of workload is positive and insignificant which shows that workload does not effect the job satisfaction of the employees in Pakistan. Job autonomy emerged as having a strong and clear correlation with job satisfaction, more autonomy in a job leads to higher job satisfaction among employees. The policy alternative should be that a supportive management is required to minimize the conflict between work and family. Top management should realize the importance of work life balance and its adverse affect on job satisfaction.
