Are work-life benefits the key to career success? Dr. Lisa M. Leslie investigates the extent to which managers attribute employees’ use of flexible work practices (FWP) to productivity and personal life motives, and the implications of these attributions for how managers view employees’ commitment and employees’ likelihood of achieving high levels of career success.(Leslie, L. M., Manchester, C. F., Park, T. Y., & Mehng, S. A. (2012). Flexible Work Practices: A Source of Career Premiums or Penalties?. Academy of Management Journal, 55(6), 1407-1428.)
