This study examines the mechanism through which family supportive environments in organizations (i.e. family supportive supervisor behaviors and work-family friendly culture) relate to turnover intentions. In a sample of 340 individuals, analysis using structural equation modeling showed that satisfaction with work-family balance mediates the relation between family supportive environments in organizations and turnover intentions. Thus, family supportive environments in organizations facilitate greater satisfaction with work-family experiences, which, in turn, relates with lower intentions to leave the company. We discuss research and practical implications of this study.
