Gender Differences in Work Family Conflict and its Relationship with Work Performance
This study assesses the gender differences in work-family conflict and the relationship between work-family conflict and work performance among Indian employees, working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A sample of one hundred male and female employees was collected via a convenient and snowball sampling method. They provided information on their work-family conflict and work performance using the following scales: Work-family Conflict Scale and Individual Work Performance Questionnaire. It was found that there is a negative relationship between work-family conflict and work performance. It was also found that significant gender differences exist in work-family conflict. Indian female employees observed higher work-family conflict than male employees. Therefore, it was found that within remote workers in India during the pandemic, females experienced higher work-family conflict than males. However, there was not enough evidence to support that females experienced lower work performance than males as only two of the three subscales reported a significant difference between the two groups.
