Ethnicity and self-esteem as predictors of work-family conflict among Nigerian workers

Lawrence O. Amazue, Fabian O. Ugwu


This study investigated the impact of ethnicity and self-esteem on work-family conflict of Nigerian employees. Five hundred and three volunteered workers (202 Hausa ethnic group workers and 301 Igbo ethnic group workers) drawn from four Federal institutions in Nigeria participated in the study. A multiple regression analysis showed that ethnicity significantly predicted work-family conflict of Nigerian employees. The result further revealed that self-esteem significantly predicted work-family conflict. It was concluded that shared values and beliefs about work and family, as well as immediate socio-contextual circumstances, shape the potential for individuals to experience work-family conflict.

Keywords: Ethnicity, self-esteem, work-family conflict and Nigerian workers.
