Public Administration researchers dr. Laura den Dulk and dr. Sandra Groeneveld awarded Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award
Public Administration researchers dr. Laura den Dulk and dr. Sandra Groeneveld were recently awarded the 2014 Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for their research paper "National context in work-life research: A multi-level cross-national analysis of the adoption of workplace work-life arrangements in Europe". The paper was co-authored with Professor Ariane Ollier-Malaterre (Université du Québec à Montréal, CA), and Professor Monique Valcour (EDHEC Business School, FR).
The study, published in European Management Journal, focuses on nation-level drivers of organizations’ adoption of leaves/childcare and flexible work arrangements (FWA) beyond what is mandated by the state. It is one of the first studies to examine interaction effects between nation-level and organization-level variables.

The paper was selected after three rigorious selection rounds which focused on four criteria: strong connections to theory, large samples, detailed data and creativity. A total 2.500 articles from 77 journals were eligible.
The Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award For Excellence in Work-Family Research is yearly awarded by The Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family to raise awareness of high quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant and practitioner communities.
