Introduction: Due to the role of women in society, work-family conflict has had negative consequences on the mental and social health of working women and their families. The aim of this study was to identify the factors affecting the balance of work -family in female employees in Birjand.
Methods: In a cross-sectional descriptive correlation study, 205 female employees working in Birjand city offices were selected by cluster sampling. In addition to demographic questions, the data collection tool was a self-administrated standard 18-item questionnaire by Carlson et al. The data were analyzed by  SPSS 19 software using independent t-test, analysis of variance, and Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: The mean age of the women was 38.6 ± 7.41 and their mean work experience was 13.36± 6.85. The mean score of the subjects was 29.37± 6.33 out of 45 in the work-family conflict dimension and 35.20 ± 6 6.52 in the family-work conflict dimension. A significant correlation was observed between women's age and work-family conflict variable. A positive and significant correlation was also observed between the two variables of work-family and family-work conflict (P = 0.001).
Conclusion: Given that the mean score of work-family and family-work conflict in female employees is high, educational interventions to improve the balance of work-family and vice versa in working women are recommended to officials and planners.
