Abstract:In the last thirty years, the percentage of women in the work force has increased and a drastic change in family structure has also taken place. Accordingly, firms' attention to work-family human resource decisions has increased. However, a shortage of research linking work-family human resource decisions to bottom line outcomes exists. This paper addresses two main questions. First, do work-family human resource decisions positively affect shareholder return? Second, does the timing of the announcement change the impact on shareholder return? In the main, the results confirmed that, on average, work-family human resource decisions positively affect shareholder return. In addition, the timing of a work-family human resource decision moderates the impact on shareholder return.
