Family friendly work practices

Author: Matthew C. Gray
ISBN: CORNELL:31924092433048
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Social Science

This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.

Designing User Friendly Augmented Work Environments

Author: Saadi Lahlou
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1848000987
Release Date: 2009-10-08
Genre: Computers

This book aims at capitalizing and transmitting know-how about the design of Augmented Environments (AE) from some of the most prominent laboratories in the field worldwide. The authors belong to the RUFAE network (Research on User- Friendly Augmented Environments, founded in 2002) who meet in research seminars to share experience; Writing this book was perceived as an opportunity to look back over the last few years to sum up important findings; and formalize their approach and experience, which they never had the time or opportunity to do. Although the authors of this book have very different backgrounds, striking similarities emerge in their approach and design principles: never-endingness, activity-orientedness, continuous design, realism are some of the pillars of this approach; enabling to deal with the complex, heterogeneous, multi-user and mul- purpose constructions which AE designers have to face. The book illustrates how these principles enabled them to construct robust, ef- cient, and user-friendly Augmented Environments in spite of the many challenges to make these operational. We hope their experience will help the reader. Primary audience: Academics, Students and Professionals involved in the CHI, CSCW, Ubicomp, Cooperative Building communities. Computer Scientists int- ested by end-users and applications, Social Scientists operating in the IT domain, IT & Organization Consultants. Secondary audience: Developers of office and conferencing applications or middleware, Architects of office buildings, Space Planners, Designers; Facility Managers; IT, furniture & building Business Communities.

Fathers and Mothers Dilemmas of the Work Life Balance

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

Release Date: 2006-04-11
Genre: Social Science

At the risk of sounding frivolous, there is a good case to be made for the argument that women constitute the revolutionary force behind contemporary social and economic transformation. It is in large part the changing role of women that explains the new household structure, our altered demographic behaviour, the growth of the service economy and, as a consequence, the new dilemmas that the advanced societies face. Most European countries have failed to adapt adequately to the novel challenges and the result is an increasingly serious disequilibrium. Women explicitly desire economic independence and the societal collective, too, needs to maximise female employment. And yet, this runs up against severe incompatibility problems that then result in very low birth rates. Our aging societies need more kids, yet fertility levels are often only half of what citizens define as their desired number of children. No matter what happens in the next decade, we are doomed to have exceedingly small cohorts that, in turn, must shoulder the massive burden of supporting a retired baby-boom generation. Hence it is tantamount that tomorrow’s adults be maximally productive and, yet, the typical EU member state invests very little in its children and families.

The Work Family Challenge

Publisher: SAGE
ISBN: 0803974698
Release Date: 1996-09-28
Genre: Business & Economics

In The Work-Family Challenge contributors from the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States explore the possibilities of challenging traditional employment structures to take account of contemporary work and family realities. They take a critical look at the notion of `family-friendly' employment, and explore ways in which the rapidly changing needs of both organizations and the workforce can be met. The volume argues that real progress requires moving the focus from specific policies and practices towards more systemic organizational change. It examines the contexts and opportunities - global, international, national, sociopolitical, legal and economic - for this change. The book concludes that positive solution

Traditional ways of dividing work by gender are disappearing and new ways of ordering our lives are emerging. Today, women and men engage in various forms of work in the course of a lifetime: work for pay, housework, family care-taking work, volunteer work. Our expansion of work roles holds great promise for our personal development, the well-being of families, and the health of society. We can weave together all forms of work, with determination and imagination, as we open doors for future generations. Our attitudes, values, and world views are changing along with our working patterns. Old ideal images, now limiting and harmful, are losing their power. Opportunities for theological reformation emerge based on a new understanding of human nature, just love, and the order of society. We live in an accelerating time of great change and great consequence. This is a book for such a time.
