Balancing family and work roles places serious demands on working women most especially in African context where women also doubled as home keepers, and this represents a key factor in achieving sustainable productivity (SDG 8.2.3). The study was to expound work-family conflict experiences by married female workers in financial instit utions, and to determine whether personal interventions play a beneficial role to improve productivity. The study adopted social survey with the use of self-administered questionnaire among 730 randomly selected married women bank employees. The study shows that 78.8% of female bankers experience work-family conflict due to strain to keep the jobs and meet up with expected family roles. In the absence of effective workplace relief, several women resort to personal coping strategies this is statistically insignificant and having a negative relationship depicting it is ineffective. The study concludes that the individual or personal intervention-based approach at minimizing work-family conflict could not be adjudged as effective. Therefore, a systematic and robust organization-based approach may be necessary as panacea for work-family conflict within the sector considered and the country as a whole.
