Waner, Karen K.; Winter, Janet K.; Mansfield, Joan C.
Journal of Education for Business, v82 n5 p291-294 May-Jun 2007
Benefits and leave policies are important aspects of employment when employees attempt to balance career and family. These policies include salary, promotion, vacation, tuition reimbursement, sick leave, medical insurance, life insurance, maternity or paternity leave, elder-care leave, discriminatory leave, and company support and counseling. The authors examined the students' attitudes concerning benefits and leave policies in the workplace. A one-way analysis of variance revealed that vacation leave, sick leave, and family leave involving children were more important to women than to men. A Wilcoxon rank sum test ranked family leave as the Number 1 benefit for both men and women. (Contains 3 tables.)
