EFFECTS OF WLB POLICIES ON THE WORK OF FEMALE EMPLOYEES
Keywords:structural equation modeling, work-life balance policy, career advancement of women, corporate performance
On the basis of a survey performed at Japanese pharmaceutical companies, this paper analyze the processes and the influence that work-life balance policies exert on the promotion of women employees and corporate performance through women’s activities. In particular, Structural Equation Modeling is used to clear complex causality between the promotion of women employees and personnel policies. The results of our analysis indicate that even if the complex relations between the variables are taken into account, productive improvements due to work-life balance policies are not observed. Although work-life balance policies do not have a direct effect on the promotion or the wages of women, they have an indirect effect on women’s promotion and wage increase through the length of their tenure.
