Lecture explores employers' approach to work-life policies

August 19, 2015  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Ariane Ollier-Malaterre will talk about work-life policies at the Sept. 10 Kanter Lecture Series at Purdue University.

"Adopting Work-Life Policies Around the World: What Motivates Employers?" will be at 11 a.m. in Krannert Auditorium, Room 140. It is free and open to the public.

The lecture will explore policies covering employee leaves, including flexible work arrangements and dependent care, as well as insights about employers and their likelihood to base policy on economical or institutional pressures.

Ollier-Malaterre is a professor of management science at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her research focuses on employers' policies that provide leaves beyond governmental mandated levels.

She is the recipient of the 2014 Kanter Award. The Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family developed the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award to raise the awareness of high quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant and practitioner communities.

The Kanter Lecture Series is sponsored by the Center for Families, Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence, Krannert School of Management, and the departments of Psychological Sciences and Human Development and Family Studies in the College of Health and Human Sciences
