Abstract The effectiveness of organisational interventions in reducing the adverse consequences of work-family conflict has produced mixed findings. This paper examines the relationship between the use of organisational 'family friendly' resources (such as crèche facilities, flexible working hours, and job sharing), with levels of work-family conflict, and job and family satisfaction over time. Using structural equation modelling, these associations were tested in 398 employed men and women who each completed a self-report questionnaire administered on two occasions. The use of organisational interventions directly predicted increased levels of concurrent (Time 1) family-work interference and increased levels of subsequent (Time 2) job satisfaction. Both organisational interventions and family interventions (i.e., support) positively predicted subsequent family satisfaction. The research demonstrates that the provision of organisational 'family-friendly' practices will produce improved psychological outcomes for employees.
