Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of work-family conflict and family-work conflict against two consequences, namely job consequences (job satisfaction and affective comitment) and health consequences (life satisfaction and emotional exhaustion) of the employees at the Inspectorate General of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia. Data obtained from 272 respondents were processed and analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results of this study suggests that the work-family conflict and family-work conflict have a negative effect on job satisfaction, effective commitment and a positive effect on emotional exhaustion.

Therefore, to improve job satisfaction and effective commitment, organizations can implement policies to minimize the conflict on their employees and to reduce the level of emotional exhaustion and increase life satisfaction of employees such as improving the quality and quantity of day-care in the office environment, determination of appropriate policies to be applied to employees and balancing the workload given to each employee.
