Based on a sweeping, ten country study, The Work-Family Interface in 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 a variety of contexts and further conceptualize work-family interactions through the development of a more universal knowledge.

Work-life interface is the intersection of work and private life. Work-family conflict and enrichment are experiences that occur daily and have substantial consequences for employees, their families, and the organisations that employ them. The aim of the current review is to make a link between life and career stage, work and family conditions, and the work-family interface. This interface can be adverse in nature (eg:, work-life conflict) or can be beneficial (eg:, work-life enrichment) in nature. Family, work, and health are mentioned by adults as the most important things in their lives. Ideally work promotes psychological health in the form of income and the development of a sense of accomplishment; family or home, in turn, is a place for attaining close relationships, personal happiness, and recovery. Todays adults are, however, facing many challenges while trying to find a satisfying balance between these life domains. Working life in society has undergone changes during recent decades, a development which is associated with global competition and the 24/7 service-on-demand society that is also evident. This has demanded that workers be flexible, expend more effort, and endure uncertainties in their lives, even at the risk of their mental health and fulfilling family life. Context of the work-family interface refers to the perspective from which the work-family interface is studied. In terms of the ecological systems theory, individual experiences in face-to-face relationships within work and family domains reflect the micro-systems of the work-family interface. The linkages and processes occurring between work and family in addition to shared experiences and reciprocal effects that occur between an individual and his/her role partners reflect the system of the work-family interface. The influence of the third life domain, in which an individual is not involved in work-family interface processes that directly involve him or her, constitutes the exosystem effects. The influence of broader social contexts, such as subcultures or larger groups with distinctive norms and rules, on the work-family interface constitutes the macro-system effects. The Work-Family Interface in a Global Context contains widespread and precise cross-cultural study of the work-family interface in contemporary society. Just as work-family conflict is linked with negative consequences for workers, organisations, and societies, so too can the work and family sphere relate positively to enhance or enrich one another. It provides narrative knowledge on the topic from different perspectives, highlighting not only the inherent challenges but also the positive side of working in a modern globalized world. In addition, the book covers several different perspectives on the work and personal life interface offering insights on the areas like adjustment, social support, dual-career issues and organisational practices. The contributed 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.

The Cambridge Handbook Of The Global Work Family Interface

The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work-Family Interface is a response to growing interest in understanding how people manage their work and family lives across the globe. Given global and regional differences in cultural values, economies, and policies and practices, research on work-family management is not always easily transportable to different contexts. Researchers have begun to acknowledge this, conducting research in various national settings, but the literature lacks a comprehensive source that aims to synthesize the state of knowledge, theoretical progression, and identification of the most compelling future research ideas within field. The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work-Family Interface aims to fill this gap by providing a single source where readers can find not only information about the general state of global work-family research, but also comprehensive reviews of region-specific research. It will be of value to researchers, graduate students, and practitioners of applied and organizational psychology, management, and family studies.

This brief and accessible title integrates contemporary scholarly research with compelling vignettes to make it appealing to both instructors and undergraduate audiences. While focused on the United States in respect to its target audience and emphasis, it contains considerable international data that compares and contrasts social policies adopted in Europe and elsewhere. In so doing, it shows both the strengths and the limitations of the approaches used in the U.S. This title is the only single source that summarizes the origins of work–family concerns, the diversities of needs and experiences, the impact of tensions on the family front, the consequences of tensions for employers, and different types of policies that can make meaningful differences not only in the lives of employees, but also potentially in job quality and national productivity.

This volume presents research on women’s experiences, attitudes and perceptions, considering their work roles and in the context of their lives outside work. It explores the various choices women may opt to take, and the resources they may use, and presents options they may wish to consider over the course of their working lives. The research presented here is varied and the methods used include cross-sectional and longitudinal research, reviews of literature, as well as experiences and practical suggestions from clinical, organisational, health and occupational health psychologists, in addition to occupational safety and health practitioners. It looks at women who are part-time employees, those in vulnerable positions in the informal economy to women in mainstream, full-time employment. The chapters present theoretical underpinnings of how, what, when and where women approach work options, approach life and approach living. The overarching factor that links these chapters is the focus on women as a vital resource in the world economy, with an exploration of the options that are available to them and how these could be maximised to retain a productive and healthy female workforce.

Problems associated with work-family conflict do not belong to individual families alone, but have a major social and economic impact on the greater community. This scenario also holds true across sub-Saharan Africa, as nations enter the global economy and rising numbers of women enter the workforce. One of the first resources to focus on this region, Work-Family Interface in Sub-Saharan Africa probes rarely-studied dimensions of conflict between paid employment and family responsibilities. It balances theoretical background, empirical findings and current and emerging interventions for an insightful and practical review of ongoing issues affecting working women with families. Coverage contrasts concepts of work and family between the developing world and the West and related social concerns such as gender expectations and sexual harassment are examined in the work context. The book describes a range of family strategies for resolving work-family friction and chapters end with policy recommendations as first steps toward remedying longstanding challenges. Among the thought-provoking dispatches: Ghana: Managing work and family demands Nigeria: Strain-based family interference with work Botswana: The social impact of job transfer policy on dual-career families Kenya: The role of household help in work-family balance South Africa: State measures toward work-care integration Zambia: The quest for a family policy As evinced by these chapters, progress is gradual and far from uniform. As a guide for future study and future policy, Work-Family Interface in Sub-Saharan Africa is a substantial reference for sociologists, public health professionals, public and social policymakers and administrators.

Focusing on the socialization of the human use of other animals as resources in contemporary Western society, this book explores the cultural reproduction of human-nonhuman animal relations in childhood. With close attention to the dominant practices through which children encounter animals and mainstream representations of animals in children's culture - whether in terms of the selective exposure of children to animals as pets or as food in the home or in school, or the representation of animals in mass media and social media - Our Children and Other Animals reveals the interconnectedness of studies of childhood, culture and human-animal relations. In doing so it establishes the importance of human-animal relations in sociology, by describing the sociological importance of animals in children's lives and children in animals’ lives. Presenting a new typology of the various kinds of human-animal relationship, this conceptually innovative book constitutes a clear demonstration of the relevance of sociology to the interdisciplinary field of human-animal relations and will appeal to readers across the social sciences with interests in sociology, childhood studies, cultural and media studies and human-animal interaction.
