In this paper the author addresses the issue of how the work environment, particularly in large companies, can meet the demands of family life. He looks at the different areas that people work in and assesses how accommodating employers are to the needs of the employees with specific reference to flexible working hours. The author also looks at how employers treat employees returning to work after maternity leave and allowing parents to attend to children during regular working hours. The author then moves on to discuss stress levels at work and how this directly relates to hours worked and time that the employee can spend with the family.

From the paper:

"However, despite the fact that today's work/life movement has its roots in dependent care, the percentage of companies that provide assistance for dependent care remains remarkably low. For example, only half (50%) have set up pre-tax accounts that help employees set aside money for child care or elder care expenses. One-third (36%) provide employees with information that help them locate child care in their communities. As we might expect, less than 1 of every 10 workplaces either has a child care center at or near the work site (9%) or helps defray some of the costs of child care (9%)."
