This study analyzed the relationship between recognition and utilization of work-family balance support policy. 'Childcare leave' was the most Implemental and utilized policy, and 'working hours reductuion', 'flexible commute time' in order. Awareness(p<.001) and satisfaction(p<.05) of using work-family balance support policy positively affected the effectiveness recognition. For intention to use work-family balance support policy, awareness and satisfaction of work-family balance support policy was not significant but family support marginally affected. This study provided implications for expanding policy consideration on female workers' family and understanding the effectiveness of work-family balance support policy.

본 연구는 여성 근로자의 일 가정양립지원제도에 대한 인식과 활용 간의 관계성 및 이용실태를 분석하였다. 연구결과 현 직장에서 시행 비중이 높으며 가장 많이 이용한 일 가정양립지원제도는 육아휴직제-시차출퇴근제-육아기 근로시간단축제 순이었다. 일 가정양립지원제도 인지도(p<.001)와 이용 만족도(p<.05)는 일 가정양립지원제도 효과성 인식에 긍정적인 영향을 미쳤다. 향후 일 가정양립지원제도 이용의도에 대한 일 가정양립지원제도 인지도 및 이용 만족도의 영향은 유의하지 않았으나 가족적 지지(배우자, 부모, 시부모)가 한계적으로 유의한 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 본 연구는 여성 근로자의 일 가정양립지원제도에 대한 인식과 활용 간의 영향관계를 분석함으로써 정책의 효과성을 파악하고, 가족적 차원까지 고려대상을 넓힌 데에 연구의 의의가 있다.
