Abstract: Purpose – The thesis seeks to examine the relationships between work family conflict and perceived social support and Individual work performance in a sample of clinical staff. Perceived social support is expected to mediate relationships between dependent and independent variables. Design/methodology/approach – A sample of 450 clinical staff from two Medical teaching Hospitals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan participated in a comprehensive survey. Hierarchical regressions were used to test the predicted relationships. Findings – work-to-family conflict and family-to-work conflict were found to be negatively related and perceived social support positively correlated with individual work performance. Perceived social support significant negative impact on work to family conflict and Family to work conflict. However, perceived social support did not moderate the relationship of work to family conflict and family to work conflict with individual work performance. Research limitations/implications – The study used a cross-sectional design and employees’ self-reports which may be problematic in drawing causal conclusions. Originality/value – The majority of studies in work-family research look at either work-family conflict or more recently, at work-family facilitation/enrichment, but little research conducted on role of perceived social support with individual work performance. By investigating relationships between work family conflict and individual work performance and the moderating role of perceived social support in a sample of clinical staff, the study extends previous research and contributes to the work-family literature by clarifying the relationship between work-to-family conflict and family to work conflict and individual work performance with perceived social support. Keywords: Individual Work Performance, Work Family Conflict, Perceived Social Support, Clinical Staff, MTI Hospitals .
