About this product
- DescriptionThis handbook is designed to illuminate issues involved in the intersection of family life and paid employment from a broad range of disciplines. These contributions by leading national and international work-family scholars represent state-of-the-art summaries of research. Topics include emerging work-family topics such as work-family facilitation and families and work in a global context. Special importance is given to differentiating the influence of workplace flexibility in making the relationship of work to family more positive. Other articles examine the role of gender and generation in understanding the family-work interface. This volume examines an often-overlooked topic in work-family literature: fathers and the influence of their work environment on the job to family relationships at home. New perspectives related to maternal employment are also presented. Whether you are a researcher, teacher, business professional, or student, Handbook of Families and Work: Interdisciplinary Perspectives is essential if you want the latest in work-family research.
