''Predicting preferences for flexible working arrangements in future employment: A gender analysis''
( 2023, Vol. 43 No.2 )
 
 
We use individual-level data from the 2008 National Study of the Changing Workforce to predict respondents' preference for workplace flexibilities in future employment, with a specific focus on how preferences for workplace flexibilities differ by gender. The data are detailed, permitting us to investigate the predictive capability of numerous worker and workplace variables germane to flexibility preferences. Interestingly, the covariates that significantly covary with flexibility preference differ substantially between female and male respondents; a reality that firms and unions may want to be mindful of when designing flexibility policies.
