Work-family Interface in Global Context (Paperback)
about this item
Based on a sweeping, ten country study, commonly known as Project 3535, The Work-Family Interface in a Global Context comprises the most comprehensive and rigorous cross-cultural study of the work-family interface to date. Just as work-family conflict is associated with negative consequences for workers, organizations, and societies, so too can the work and family domains interact positively to enhance or enrich one another. Drawing on qualitative, quantitative, and policy based data, chapters in this collection explore the influence of culture on the work-family interface, in order to help researchers and managers understand the applicability of work-family models in non-Western contexts, and further conceptualize work-family interactions through the development of a more universal and contextualized knowledge.
