Abstract: Purpose: The objective of this work is to analyze the impact of implementing work-family reconciliation measures on workers' perception and how this can influence their behavior, especially in their organizational performance. Design/methodology/approach: A literature review and the main research works related to the work-family conflict and reconciliation measures to overcome this conflict have been conducted to draw conclusions about their impact on worker performance. Contributions and results: This work proposes an integrative model that shows the existing relationships between work-family reconciliation and perceptual variables on one side, and those related to the worker's organizational behavior on the other. Perceptual variables such as stress, job satisfaction, and motivation are analyzed. Regarding variables related to the worker's organizational behavior, absenteeism, turnover, and performance are analyzed. The results of the analysis provide evidence that the existence of work-family reconciliation is perceived favorably by workers and improves their organizational behavior, especially their performance. Originality/Added value: This study integrates different perspectives related to the conflict and work-family reconciliation, from an eclectic vision. Thus, it contributes to existing literature with a more comprehensive approach to the investigated topic. Additionally, the proposed integrative model allows for useful conclusions for management from both a purely human resources management perspective and organizational productivity improvement. Keywords: Work-family conflict, work-family reconciliation, perceptual variables, organizational performance, human resources managements
