Managing a Diverse Workforce: Aligning and Managing Work/Life Relationships in Organizations

By Ellen Ernst Kossek, Ph.D.  10/19/2009

Managing work/life and work/family relationships has become an increasingly important diversity and productivity challenge for employers. The blurring boundaries between work and personal life due to technology; the accessibility of work 24 hours, seven days a week; and an increase in employee care giving demands contribute to the challenge of balancing work/life demands. Even workers without family responsibilities increasingly expect that employers offer more workplace flexibility to support their work-life preferences. This module, designed to be taught over three 50-minute class periods and geared to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, discusses how employers can manage work/life relationships from several aspects. This module includes an instructor’s manual and three PowerPoint presentations: Class one, class two and class three.
