SILVEIRA, Susana Sarmento  and  BENDASSOLLI, Pedro Fernando. Work-family conciliation strategies for university professors in a Brazilian Northeast capital. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.3, pp. 422-429. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study aims to investigate work-family conciliation strategies adopted by university professors in a capital city of Northeast Brazil, associating this with the centrality attributed to work. In total, 168 professors participated in the study located in the city of Natal, in Rio Grande do Norte. Information was collected through the online application of an instrument on conciliation strategies, adapted semantically to the Brazilian reality, and a centrality of work scale. Data were analyzed using multivariate techniques and association between means. Results indicated that the five conciliation strategies foreseen in the original model of the scale are maintained empirically with these participants. The emotional support factor stands out as the most important, considering the analysis of means. Centrality of work proved to be related only with the emotional support factor. This paper suggests that this finding makes theoretical sense, insofar as conciliation strategies imply the interconnection between the work-family spheres.

Keywords : work-family conciliation; centrality of work; work and gender.
