Some Major Antecedents of Work-Family Conflict among Married Male and Female Professionals
- The primary purpose of this study was to explore some major antecedents of work-family conflict among married male and female professionals (Medical doctors, Engineers, Lawyers, Professors and Directors). In addition, this study attempted to develop the Myanmar version of the Work-Family Conflict Scale (WFC) based on a translation of Carlson, Kacmar, and Williams’ (2000) original instrument. Specific hypotheses (5 in number) were derived from the general proposition and then they were tested using a sample of 209 professionals from Mandalay and Magway. Regression results indicated that work role conflict, family role conflict and family role ambiguity were positively correlated with work-family conflict and family-work conflict. Furthermore, external locus of control was positively related to work-family conflict. However, work role ambiguity, social support and Type A personality were not associated with work-family conflict. These findings are presented together with the suggestion that future research should further examine the role of WFC and its influence on the well-being of Myanmar professionals.
