Work-family interaction in the context of individualism-collectivism culture

Based on the increasing interests in the work-family research in IO/OB domain, the researchers find that social or national culture has a key role to play in shaping the individual's work-family interaction. This review starts with the analysis of the prior researches that have incorporated cultural consideration in some manner and identify individualism-collectivism dimension that influence the work-family interaction. Conclusions have been made as follows:In the individualist cultural norm, the individual are inclined to put equal value of work domain and family domain, and there is a relative clear line between the work and family life. Whereas, in collectivist cultural society, asymmetry are shown in the work-family interface which means individual are willing to put priority on work domain. This social belief is most likely resulted from the cognition of connection and integration of work-family. Future task of Chinese researchers is to construct the localization theory to explain the phenomenon and mechanism of work-family interaction in Chinese society.

Key words:work-family interaction,work-family conflict,culture sensitive,individualism-collectivism.
