Abstract

This study is aimed to examine the impact of work family conflicts on job satisfaction level of employees which is an important and most studied attitudinal antecedent of employees’ outcomes. Mitigation role of both facets of job embeddedness have also been investigated for this relationship which has not been focused in previous research. This study is unique in a way that it has considered family specific perspective and contemporary construct ‘embeddedness’ simultaneously that ultimately shape and influence job satisfaction level on employees. In this correlational and cross-sectional study data was collected from patrolling officers of Motorway Police, Punjab, Pakistan. The analysis proved negative correlation of work family conflicts with job satisfaction and moderating role of organization embeddedness has its support from the data. Relationship of family work conflict and community embeddedness has no support in this study that needs to be investigated in future research. HR professionals of today’ business organizations must work toward work life balance strategies and should consider organizational embeddedness as one of the options to dissipate family conflict caused due to extra work demands.
