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.

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.

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.

Technology is changing the way we integrate work and family life today. In an age in which information technology has brought the promise of autonomy and control by allowing asynchronous communications; in which work systems have enabled people to work from various times and in various locations; and in which work and non-work boundaries have as a result been blurred, the work and family interface needs to be reconsidered. This collection is the result of a careful selection of articles presented at the Sixth International Conference for Work and Family organized by the International Center for Work and Family at IESE Business School, Spain. It has a clear focus on technology, managers, globalization, and gender, and contributions analyse the state of affairs in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and North America. The chapters here offer innovative approaches to how technology, globalization, managers and gender issues are affecting the dynamics of work and family balance around the world. As such, the book will help practitioners and academics to make better decisions, to stay up to date on current developments, and to think critically about these fascinating and complex topics.

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.
