Employees’ perceptions of a family-responsive workplace and their productivity

Employees’ perceptions of a family-responsive workplace and their productivity

The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) and Investing in Women collaborated on a research on the implications of family-responsive workplace policies on employee productivity in the Philippines in terms of retention, advancement and performance.

The study results indicate a general satisfaction and feelings of welfare among the respondents. Family factors are important influencers in employees’ productivity. The personal role of employees in their families and their perception of the most relevant policies and programs related to family-responsive workplace are key influencers of their perceived productivity in the workplace.

Recommendations were proposed to companies for policy and program development, to employees for practical application, and to family and gender experts and advocates for further studies. In particular, family-responsive programs can be made inclusive of men and women and married and single employees, considering as well their role in their families, good compensation, competitive salary and wage.
