Abstract

The purpose ofthis paper is to identify the mediating role of family-supportive organizational perceptions (FSOP) between family-friendly support programs (FFP) (flexible work arrangements, specialized leave options, childcare facilities, financial supports, information and support and others) and work-to-family enrichment (WFE) (developmental-based, affective-based and capital-based) among working women. A quantitative methodology was used in this study. Data were gathered through survey questionnaire that was administered among 163 managerial and professional women and non-managerial and non-professional women currently working in two selected public institutions of higher education in Sarawak, Malaysia. The hypotheses of the study were analysed using Pearson's correlation analysis, analysis and Sobel test. The results revealed that FSOP mediate the effect ofthe awareness on the availability of FWA and childcare facilities on WFE (affective-based), which highlight the important role played by FSOP in determining the outcome ofFFP. Another important finding showed that there is a small negative relationship between FSOP and WFE (affective-based). Hence, the adoption of work-life balance approach has to take into consideration the context in which it will operates as there is no 'one size fits all' approach that can meet the real needs of various cultures.
