Harmonizing Work, Family, and Personal Life by Steven A. Y. Poelmans

Book Description

Organizations can no longer afford to assume that the ideal employee is male, full-time, and free from responsibilities outside work. As the percentage of women in the active work population rises, and the number of dual-income families grows, there is an ever greater demand for more flexible patterns of employment. Harmonizing Work, Family, and Personal Life examines the organizational challenges of introducing work-life policies and practices from both an individual and a managerial perspective. Drawing on a broad range of international case studies of companies where such policies have both succeeded and failed, it acts as a practical guide for policy design and implementation. Harmonizing Work, Family, and Personal Life will be essential reading for human resource practitioners, advanced students and academic researchers in the field of human resource management, organizational behavior, or career management.
