Cross Cultural Validation Of Perceived Workfamily Facilitation Scale Using Participants From Nigeria
AbstractThe work family interface contains four unique factors based on studies from
western countries. However, some of these studies have questioned the cross
cultural adoption of psychological concept, and called for a re-validation prior to adoption. The main purpose of this study is to re-validate the four factor structure that defines the work family interface using participants from selected organisations in Nigeria. This is to show that the four factor model obtained with western participants, has cross-cultural application. It also determined if each factor contributes unique variance to the variance of job satisfaction. Using principal component, confirmatory factor, and hierarchical regression analyses, the study established four distinct factors of work family facilitation, family work facilitation, work family conflict, and family work conflict that define the work family interface, with each factor making unique contribution to the variance of job satisfaction.
