Human Resource Management Issues. Symposium 22. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on human resource management issues consists of three presentations. "Work and Family Conflict: A Review of the Theory and Literature" (Susan R. Madsen) explores the literature related to work and family conflict and its possible implications to human resource development (HRD) theory and practice. It presents four existing theoretical frameworks and reviews the literature related to antecedents/determinants and possible outcomes of work-family conflict and provides recommendations and contributions to HRD professionals. "Behind the Badge: Implications for Employee Assistance Programs in Law Enforcement" (Lynn Atkinson-Tovar, Kathleen Kiernan) reports a study on how stress affects the daily lives of federal and local law enforcement officers and whether they are willing to seek assistance. Findings indicate professionals in law enforcement are willing to acknowledge the need for employee stress reduction programs. "Employee Expectations, Characteristics, and Perceived Goal-Attainment of Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) Participants" (Ronald L. Jacobs, Mark Skillings, Angela Yu) presents these results of an evaluation study: individuals participated in TAPs because they primarily sought to achieve personal enrichment goals and an apparent discrepancy is suggested between what organizations might expect from offering a TAP benefit and the reported intents of individuals who use TAP benefits.
