The Study investigated the Influence of Women and Family-friendly Support Services on Work Performance of female employees in work organizations. A descriptive survey design of Ex-post factor was adopted for this study. A total of 860 participants, drawn from services, manufacturing, and distributive organizations made up sample for the study. Data was collected using four validated instruments. These were Women-Friendly Support Inventory (WFSI), Family-Friendly Support Inventory (FFSI), Work Performance Rating Scale 1 and 2 (WPRS 1 and WPRS 2). One way ANOVA was used to analyze data at 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that there was significant difference between work performance of participants (P<.05) who enjoyed women and family-friendly support services (X = 101.1) and those who did not (X = 96.3); there was no significant difference (P>.05) in work performance of married participants (X = 99.6) and single participants (X = 99.5) who enjoyed women-friendly support services. Work performance of single and married female workers who benefited from family-friendly support services differed significantly (F(2,845) = 23.1; p < .05).
