Abstract

While the Indonesian government is providing more activities to the development of lecturers in the period of educational reform, the study indicates the existence of perceived pressures derived from the incompatibility to balance work and family requested roles. This study examines the sources and outcomes of the work-family conflict among Indonesian lecturers in the reform period. Partial least squares (PLS) analysis was used to examine the proposed hypotheses. The findings in the sources show that work and family demands positively influence the work-family conflict, with the higher effect of family demand on the work-family conflict than that of work demand. The results of the outcomes reveal that job and family satisfactions mediate the negative relationship between the work-family conflict and life satisfaction. The findings work as a management alert for the Indonesian government and higher education institutions to evaluate the application of education reform in Indonesia through managing the work-family conflict among the lecturers.
