n Gender and Behaviour - Benefits of family-responsible management in the Nigerian environment - a comparison of two breweries

Volume 8, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1596-9231



This research uses both qualitative and quantitative methods to study organizations in the Nigerian environment. A brewery with a family-responsible culture expressed in work-life policies is compared with a competing brewery in which the work-family interface is disregarded, examining gender differences. Results indicate that a family-responsible culture with relevant policies, even in an employer-dominated market, is associated with a healthier, more committed work force with lower turnover. In the brewery with a family-responsible culture, women reported less time-based and stress-based work-family conflict and a lower level of turnover intentions than their male counterparts, suggesting that a supportive work culture means a much more substantial relief for women than for men. Men in the family-responsible brewery experienced significantly higher wellbeing than their counterparts in the other brewery.
