Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The article analyzes the relationship between the conflict between family and work and the practices implemented by companies to resolve this conflict. Attention to the theme has grown over the last few decades fueled by the increasing difficulties that workers experience to respond to their family and work responsibilities (Allen et al. 2000; Brummelhuis & Van der Lippe 2010; Greenhaus & Powell, 2006). In light of the growing relevance of the topic, this article aims to analyze the impact that work-life balance initiatives have on the conflict perceived by workers. Thanks to a questionnaire administered to 2,419 workers, four clusters of workers were identified that present a different perception of the conflict between family and work: the harmonics, the rampant, the migratory and the blocked. For each cluster, therefore, the initiatives implemented by the companies that have proved most effective in reducing the existing conflict have been identified. The research has therefore highlighted how the effectiveness of work-life balance initiatives depends on the workers' perception of the conflict and, therefore, how different conciliation strategies must be undertaken in response to the four clusters identified.
