Title: Evolving conceptions of work-family boundaries: In defense of the family as stakeholder
Authors: Cunha, M. P. e; Hern谩ndez-Linares, R.; Sousa, M. de; Clegg, S.; Rego, J.
Abstract: In the management and organization studies literature, a key question to explore and explain
is that of the family as an organizational stakeholder, particularly when working-from-home
became the 鈥渘ew normal鈥. Departing from meta-analytic studies on the work-family relation
and connecting with scholarly conversation on work-family boundary dynamics, we identify
three main narratives. In the separation narrative, work and family belong to different realms,
and including the family in the domain of organizational responsibility is seen as pointless. The
interdependence narrative stresses that organizations and families are overlapping domains in
which it is important to acknowledge that the policies and practices of the former might have
an impact on family life, and vice-versa. The embeddedness narrative, brought to the fore by
the COVID-19 pandemic, sees employment and family as progressively convergent and hybrid
work domains. The evolution of employment relations towards increased hybridity of the work
situation being embedded in the familial/household context increasingly calls for consideration
of the family/household as an integral rather than a peripheral stakeholder.​
