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.
Ellen Kossek was recently interviewed for the Research Spotlight Series on the Work and Family Researchers Network website. She spoke about creating sustainable workplaces, and shared some findings of WFHN research relating to the positive impact managers can have on their employees after receiving some customized workplace training.
This Time magazine article on what can be done to reduce work-family tension and create a cultural shift and lasting organizational change references a WFHN study on impact of changes at work on work-family conflict, and several WFHN researchers.
