dc.description.abstractThe work-life interface literature has not adequately examined the objective effects the work-life interface can have for individuals. There has also yet to be an investigation on how an individual’s imbalance or balance between their work-life interface might affect their job performance. This thesis seeks to address these gaps in the literature by exploring the roles of work-family conflict, family-work conflict, work-family balance satisfaction, work-family balance effectiveness, and gender for one’s job performance. In order to accomplish this, I examine these specific facets of the work-life interface and how they affect job performance, in terms of h-indexes, using a sample of 266 tenured and tenure-track faculty members across 25 public universities in the United States. The results support a couple of the proposed hypotheses, indicating that work-family balance satisfaction enhances job performance and that men have better job performance compared to women.
