Work and Family—Allies or Enemies?

Over the past few years, society as a whole has started to look more closely at the family-friendliness of employers. A family-friendliness movement has been initiated, motivated by social and cultural forces pushing for gender equity, a sense that society may be ignoring the needs of children and of our communities, and an increased awareness of the significance of personal and spiritual development. This movement's focus on the workplace started from an increased sensitivity to the role employers play in molding their employees' personal lives. People are realizing that employer policies and practices dealing with work and life outside of work can have a crucial impact beyond the workplace.
