Roya Ayman, professor of psychology and director of the Industrial-Organizational Psychology program in Lewis College of Human Sciences, has published a new book, The Work-Family Interface in Global Context.
Based on a sweeping, 10-country study, the book comprises the most comprehensive and rigorous cross-cultural study of the work-family interface to date. Just as work-family conflict is associated with negative consequences for workers, organizations, and societies, so too can the work and family domains interact positively to enhance or enrich one another. Drawing on qualitative, quantitative, and policy-based data, chapters in this collection explore the influence of culture on the work-family interface in order to help researchers and managers understand the applicability of work-family models in a variety of contexts and further conceptualize work-family interactions through the development of a more universal knowledge.
Ayman co-edited the book with her colleagues Karen Korabik (University of Guelph, Canada) and Zeynep Aycan (Koç University, Turkey). The book was published by Routledge on April 14, 2017.
