Abdul Wali Khan University, Mardan, Pakistan
The aim of the study was to explore the relationship between work-life conflict and job satisfaction in banking sector of Pakistan. Prior studies have examined the impact of the work-life conflict on job satisfaction. This paper provides a review of literature and generates the theoretical background suggesting that there is a negative relationship between work-life conflict and job satisfaction. To examine this relationship, study adopted quantitative analysis by using two questionnaires comprised of work to family interference, family to work interference and job satisfaction to test the proposed hypotheses. The data was collected from four banks in Islamabad and Faisalabad. 340 questionnaires were distributed for data collection and received back 181 with a response rate of 53%. Findings of the study showed that both work to family interference and family to work interference are negatively and significantly correlated with job satisfaction. There is a negative relationship between work to family interference and job satisfaction as well as negative relationship between family to work interference and job satisfaction. The findings supported the proposed hypotheses and the previous research that suggested that job satisfaction is significantly negatively correlated with work to family interference and family to work interference.
