The study, Effects of a Workplace Intervention on Parent–Child Relationships published in Journal of Child and Family Studies by Work, Family & Health Network researchers, evaluates the impact on parent-adolescent relationships of a workplace intervention aimed at boosting employees' schedule control and supervisor support for personal and family life.
The results of a flagship WFHN study published in Pediatrics indicate that working mothers who, as part of the WFHN intervention, had supervisors that were trained to be more supportive of their employees' personal and family lives and schedule control, were spending approximately 40 minutes more per day with their daughters 12 months after the intervention.
A recent WFHN study that found that workers who had more control over their schedules (thanks to managers that were trained to be more supportive of work-life balance) slept an average of one additional hour per week, has received press in the Huffington Post.
A study by WFHN researchers that explores work-to-family conflict in the context of both individual- and team-level work conditions has been published as a chapter in the book series Research in the Sociology of Work. Authors of the study include Network researchers Phyllis Moen, Anne Kaduk, Ellen Ernst Kossek, Leslie Hammer, Orfeu M. Buxton, Emily O’Donnell, David Almeida, Kimberly Fox, Eric Tranby, J. Michael Oakes, and Lynne Casper.
