Balancing Work and Family Life Conflict through Human Resource Management

Nadia Newaz Rimi, Mohammad Rabiul Basher Rubel


Changes in workforce demography have brought the issue of work-family
conflict (WFC) within the research paradigm. Western countries have given more
emphasis on WFC issues. Recently researchers of Asian developing countries are
also showing their interest in studying WFC, its antecedents and outcomes.
However, In Bangladesh, study on WFC is very limited. The present paper aims at
accumulating scattered research findings on WFC so that employer and employees
of Bangladesh can have a better idea of addressing WFC with possible remedial
strategies. Moreover, the paper proposes a new dimension of research area: getting
employee outcomes through managing WFC by Human Resource Management
(HRM) practices in the organizations of Bangladesh. A model relating HRM and
WFC to get positive employee outcomes is presented and related hypotheses are
formed to support WFC policy making for the organizations of Bangladesh. More
studies on this area are thereby, sought from the local researchers. Thus, WFC from
the developing country perspective is added.
