Abstract: The study of work-family conflict (WFC) and work-family policies (WFP) and their impact on the well-being of employees in the tourism sector is increasingly attracting the attention of researchers. To overcome the adverse effects of WFC, managers should promote WFP, which contribute to increased well-being at work and employees' commitment. This paper aims to analyze the impact of WFP accessibility and organizational support on well-being directly and by mediating the organizational commitment that these policies might encourage. In addition, we also study whether these relationships vary according to gender and employee seniority. To test the hypotheses derived from this objective, we collected 530 valid and completed questionnaires from workers in the tourism sector in Spain, which we analyzed using structural equation modeling based on the PLS-SEM approach. The results show that human resource management must consider the importance of organizational support for workers to make WFP accessible and generate organizational commitment and well-being at work.
