When Family Considerations Influence Work Decisions: Decision-Making Processes
Powell, Gary N.; Greenhaus, Jeffrey H.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v81 n3 p322-329 Dec 2012
The work-family literature has provided an abundance of evidence that various family factors are linked to various work decisions, suggesting that the "family-relatedness" of work decisions is a prevalent phenomenon (Greenhaus & Powell, 2012). However, the cognitive processes by which such linkages occur have received little attention. We offer a framework by which to examine individuals' decision-making processes when they take family considerations into account in their work decisions. The framework suggests stages through which individuals proceed when making a work decision that takes family considerations into account and cognitive processes that influence how they proceed through each stage.
