Abstract

The authors address the question of what factors influence the corporate response to work-and-family issues, using data from a written survey of companies. They hypothesized that various demographic, organizational, and other characteristics might affect the degree of a business's response. Among their findings are (1) that the percentage of female employees was unrelated to the responsiveness measure when other factors were controlled; (2) that industry and geographic effects were significant; and (3) that companies which regularly survey their employees tended to be more responsive. © 1993 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
