The majority of business professionals eventually get married and have children, which creates the task of achieving a significant integration of family life and career. It is seen that it can be tough to sustain a high level of involvement in both career and family — although it is possible. The emphasis in this chapter is on whether it's feasible to achieve career success if men and women are deeply involved with family — which has consequences for employers and employees alike. Here, we discover how family responsibilities affect our business professionals in the career domain. Women pay a heavy price, while men can actually benefit.
