Understanding Differential Organizational Responses to Work/Family Issues: The Role of Beliefs, Attitudes, and Decision-Making Styles of Chief Executive Officers
Eversole, Barbara A. W.; Gloeckner, Gene; Banning, James H.
Online Submission
Differential adoption of work/life programs by organizations was investigated by studying chief executive officers. A grounded theory was developed and differential adoption explained by the way CEOs made decisions. Implications for work/life program managers include suggestions for persuading CEOs to adopt work/family programs. The study adds to new knowledge in HRD by providing data useful for top management persuasion, executive development, understanding executive decision-making processes, and understanding factors important to work/life program adoption. (Contains 2 figures.)
