Abstract

In this study, the relationship between work-family conflict and family-work conflict and demographic factors of watchkeeping officers, who are among seafarers who have been separated from their families and social life for a long time and work in difficult sea conditions, were examined. The sample of the study consists of 104 participants who have the qualifications of deck and engine officers working on oceangoing ships. The scale developed by Netemeyer et al., (1996) was used to measure work-family and family-work conflict. The data used in the study were collected by questionnaire technique and the obtained data were analyzed using t-test and Anova test. According to the results of this study, it was determined that the work roles of the participants affected their family life, while the family roles did not affect their work life much.
