Abstract and Keywords

Family-friendly, equal-opportunity, and high-involvement initiatives have increasingly been at the forefront of discussions of human resource management since the 1990s. They are widely viewed by academics and policy makers as critical ways of simultaneously improving the well-being of workers and the efficiency of organizations. Moreover, they are often presented as related practices. This article first discusses how they are perceived to be related and the research thus far on their links to organizational performance. It then reports a study designed to test these associations.

Keywords: family-friendly management, equal-opportunity management, high-involvement management, Britain, human resource management, organizational efficiency, worker well-being, organizational performance
