Men and Work-Life Integration: A Global Study

A Report by WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress and WFD Consulting
May 2011

A quarter century after its emergence and a decade after the business case was established, the work-life field is challenged to understand the barriers that persist in preventing both employees (especially men) from fully utilizing work-life options, and managers (often men) from fully supporting them. WFD Consulting and WorldatWork’s Alliance for Work-Life Progress partnered to investigate these challenges on a global scale.
