About this title
Corporations, Businesses, and Families offers a comprehensive look at the relationship between family systems and work organizations. Discussions ranging from work-family issues of the past such as the decline of the role of the family in the workplace during the rise of labor unions, to current trends toward increased corporate provision of child care, introduce a historical overview of the changes in work-family relationships from various perspectives. Special topics of interest include methodological strategies for researchers investigating work-family issues within the corporation, perspectives of minority families in corporate work settings, and family responsiveness in military organizations.
In addition to examining the relationship between the corporation and the families of its employees, the authors explore the systems of management and succession in family-run corporations and businesses, and the family business aspects of teleministries. Researchers, students, human resource managers, and business policymakers will benefit from the information in this authoritative new book. The trends and issues identified in this illuminating volume will be useful in planning corporate initiatives that affect families, and in training students in business and social science programs where work-family issues are of interest.
