The problem and the solution. Systematic theorizing about workfamily balance has not kept pace with interest, which undermines organizations' abilities to effectively monitor workfamily balance and to use workfamily balance strategically. The goal of this article is to develop a better conceptual understanding of workfamily balance. Workfamily balance is defined as accomplishment of role-related expectations that are negotiated and shared between an individual and his or her role-related partners in the work and family domains. This article elaborates on how this definition of workfamily balance addresses limitations of previous conceptualizations and describes areas for human resource development research and implications for using workfamily balance strategically in management practice.
