With 80's and 90's workers gradually dominate the labor market, the new generation knowledge workers is becoming the main force in corporate development and innovation. Growing up in a special background, they pursue the quality of life while enjoy working, making the balance between work and life become one of their important values. Work give employees material security and a sense of accomplishment, and family supply a sense of belonging and well-being. Work and family is one's two main social activity areas, the relationship between them greatly influence one's emotion and feelings, and then affect the job satisfaction, which is a main indicator measuring the staffs attitude for the organization, higher job satisfaction tends to bring a series of positive organizational outcomes. Therefore, the managers should highlight the work-family balance of the new generation of knowledge workers to improve their job satisfaction, inciting their initiative dynamic largely.Organizational commitment is closely related to job satisfaction and one's work-family interface experience, therefore, the present study investigate the new generation of knowledge workers'work-family features, and based on the Person-Environment Fit theory, point out that one's work-family relationship results from the interaction of one's desire and the organization's resources, and further investigate the job satisfaction differ at different work-family relationships and the regulating role of organization commitment between them. The results provide some inspiration for the new generation workers'management practices:First, by analyzing the characteristics of work-family boundary of the new generation knowledge workers, we found that the new generation of knowledge workers have a higher work flexibility willingness, which is consistent with the work value of pursuing life quality, they wish the work boundary have a higher flexibility to expand and shrink, but the organization does not provide adequate support resources relatively.Secondly, compared to the work flexibility willingness or work flexibility ability, one's work-family conflict and work-family enrichment was impacted greatly by the match between them, the match negatively predict the WFC, and positively related to WFE.Finally, individual's work-family interface significantly influence their job satisfaction, the work-family conflict decreased their job satisfaction, the positive relationship between work and family enhanced job satisfaction; the new generation of knowledge workers' organizational affective commitment reduced the negative effect of conflict on job satisfaction, strengthened the positive effect of enrichment on job satisfaction; continued commitment t strengthened the negative effect of conflict on job satisfaction. As well, we found that the new generation of knowledge workers have a lower normative commitment, and it has no moderating effect, which may result from their work value of assertive personality, defiance authority and the strong self-conscious.
