Are organisations responding to significant changes in Australian labour force demographics by providing more family-friendly programs? This paper explores variations across companies in the implementation of work-family programs and policies related to demands of key constituent groups. The present evaluation indicates that certain employee demographic factors (in particular, employees with dependants, women, union members and, long serving employees) are likely to predispose an organisation to offer certain types of work-family benefits.
