by Akers, Krista, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2017, 69; 10274925
Abstract (Summary)

There is mixed literature on relationship between family-friendly policies (FFPs), the effect FFPs have on recruitment efforts in organizations, and how gender and work-family conflict might influence the perceptions of applicants. To address these gaps in the literature, the current study explored the influences that FFPs, gender, and work-family conflict (WFC) had on organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intentions. Those with high WFC found family-friendly organizations more attractive. This relationship was moderated by gender. Implications for future research and practical use are discussed.
