This paper examines the role of work-life balance practices (WLB) in explaining the “paradox of the contented female worker”. After establishing that females report higher levels of job satisfaction than men in the UK, we test whether firm characteristics such as WLB and gender segregation boost the satisfaction of women proportionately more than that of men, thereby explaining why the former are reportedly happier. The results prove that WLB practices increase the likelihood of reporting higher satisfaction but similarly for both demographic groups thereby reducing the gender gap in job satisfaction only slightly. Still, the ...

The Father's Day Balance Sheet

I’ve been a father for 28 years, an entrepreneur for 32. As with any demanding job, balancing the responsibilities of parenthood with the responsibilities of the business has been a challenge. My perspective has changed, and I write today’s post for the benefit (I hope) of younger parents, fathers and mothers, who are dealing with this struggle. People used to tell me, “There is no old man lying in his death bed wishing he would have spent more time at work.” When I used to hear ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

To learn about the job satisfaction of recent financial planning graduates of a large university in the Midwest, the authors developed a survey on job ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
