The Family-Relatedness of Work Decisions: A Framework and Agenda for Theory and Research
Greenhaus, Jeffrey H.; Powell, Gary N.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v80 n2 p246-255 Apr 2012
Due to global trends such as the increased labor force participation of women, the growing presence of dual-earner couples and single parents in the labor force, and changing values regarding the importance of life balance, individuals' work decisions are being increasingly influenced by family considerations. However, the "family-relatedness" of work decisions, or the extent to which family situations are considered in these decisions, has not been systematically examined. We propose a framework to examine the family-relatedness of work decisions and a broad agenda for future theory and research to test and extend the framework. (Contains 1 figure.)
