AGUIAR, Carolina Villa Nova  and  BASTOS, Antônio Virgílio Bittencourt. Work and family interfaces: the phenomenon's characteristics and predictors. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp. 15-21. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study aims to characterize the work-family interface in a Brazilian sample and identify some of its predictors. The study included 446 workers of different organizations and occupations. The questionnaire was composed of the Work-Family Conflict, Positive Work-Family Interface, Family Adequacy, and Organizational Support scales. The data were submitted to descriptive statistics and correlation, comparison of groups, and multiple linear regression analysis. The results indicated that the benefits arising from the accumulation of roles were more clearly perceived than their drawbacks. Additionally, it was noted that subjective characteristics, such as the perception of family adequacy and organizational support, were more decisive for the prediction of conflict and positive work-family interface than concrete characteristics, revealing the importance of the quality of family and occupational inclusion for a good balance between work and family.

Keywords : family; work; work-family conflict; positive work-family interface.
