Abstract

Work-family balance or conflicts has considerable impact on job satisfaction, and the perceived organizational support of employees plays a decisive role in determining the degree of the impact. Through questionnaire surveys, this study distributed among teachers in off-campus training schools 400 questionnaires, 358 of which were collected and deemed effective. The survey results show that except emotional support, other factors including work-family conflicts, instrumental support and supervisor support have significant positive correlation to the respondents’ job satisfaction; work-family enrichment, instrumental support, and supervisor support have significant positive correlation to job satisfaction; both instrumental support and supervisor support play a mediating role in the impact of all sub-factors of work-family interface on job satisfaction, while emotional support does not. Moreover, the job demands-resources model and the organization theory are employed to analyze the research results.
