Purpose: The main objective of this paper is to investigate the effects of work-family conflict, family-work conflict, and work-life balance on female teachers in the public education sector in Saudi Arabia as well as to analyze the impact of job satisfaction as a moderator for the independent variables.
Methodology: This paper is based on quantitative research methods that included a survey of employees. The constructs of work-family conflict, family-work conflict, and work-life balance were formed using the bivariate and correlation analysis done in SPSS. A scatterplot was used to identify the relationships between the moderating factor of job satisfaction with the independent variables. Finally, multiple regression was done to understand the impact of work-family conflict, family-work conflict, and work-life balance on employee performance among female Saudi teachers in the public education sector. A linear regression analysis was applied to test the research hypotheses.
Findings: The results showed that there is a positive and highly significant impact on employee performance by work-life balance and job satisfaction, whereas there is a positive but not significant effect when it comes to work-family conflict. However, family-work conflict revealed a significant negative impact on employee performance.
