Abstract

The purpose of the paper is firstly, to provide evidence on the key challenges faced by families today as members attempt to manage work and care and secondly, to critically examine policy solutions and initiatives, offered by governments, employers and civil society actors to ensure work-family balance. Including examples of public and workplace policies from around the world, the paper has sections on: parents' working patterns; the impact of work pressures on family life; and work-family balance policies and programmes for families. Recommendations include 'a family-focused work-life vision' and also cover: family leave; flexible work arrangements and work-time innovation; early child care and education and youth care; and mixed partnerships in a multi-stakeholder approach.
