MIT Workplace Center

This research center aims to build — in theory and in practice — a mutually supportive relationship between the performance of firms and the well-being of employees, their families, and communities. Focusing on a regional economy, the center brings together groups concerned with work-family issues to elicit their ideas and promote coordinated problem solving. Researchers collaborate with interested firms to design new models of work organization and employment practices that improve the quality of work and family life. Using this experience, they create multiple templates for work practices that promote work-family integration.
