ABSTRACT

A final condition for the success of work-life supports is culture-this includes the culture outside and inside an organization. Everything I’ve covered so far affects and is affected by culture, which is the broader context outside an organization as well as the disposition within a company. Culture is important to the discussion of work-life supports because it can be an enabler, an obstacle, or both. Work-life supports can be effective in any organizational system. They must, however, be aligned with key features of the company and matched to where it wants to go.
