1) Ursula Henz , Colin Mills (2015) Work-Life Conflict in Britain: Job Demands and Resources European Sociological Review Vol 31, issue 1, Pp 1-13
Abstract

This article examines the influence of job demands and job-related resources on the experience of two dimensions of work-life conflict (WLC) in Britain. Theory suggests that higher levels of resources should reduce WLC but empirical analyses often fail to find this effect. We address the issue by examining the impact of a wide range of resources as well as their interactions with job demands. Analyses of the Working in Britain 2000 survey suggest that job resources and demands affect WLC through different processes, which differ for the two types of WLC. They fail to find evidence that job resources dampen the effects of job demands on WLC. They also document that many effects of job characteristics depend on context or vary by gender, for example, the effects of job pressure and job autonomy.

Making Caregiving Compatible with Work, Harvard Business Review

Publié dans Harvard Business Review, octobre 2015, et signé par Nanette Fonda

In her new book, Unfinished Business, Anne-Marie Slaughter calls for a major mindset shift by business leaders and managers. Today, she points out, women are primary breadwinners in 40 percent of households; by 2020 more than one in three Americans will be caring for an elder person; and Millennial men particularly yearn for more connection with and opportunity to care for family members. She implores business decision-makers to recognize that caring for children, elders, and others in need is part of a life portfolio for almost all workers, whether they show it or not. Legislators may enact policies, and individual workers may find coping strategies to integrate work and caring commitments, but the workplace is the nexus of this challenge and the place to create practical solutions.
