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.
