Further study revealed the relationship between WFC and dimensions of WPSS namely Perceived Organizational Support, Perceived Supervisor Work Support and Family Supportive Supervisor behaviour. An adapted Likert scale questionnaire was used to survey on managerial employees who belong to the large scale apparel companies in Sri Lanka. This study employed confirmatory factor analysis, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis in testing the hypotheses of the study by using SPSS statistical software package. Study provides valuable insights to existing work family literature through investigating a statistically significant and strong impact of WPSS on predicting WFC and FWC.
