Resumen

PADDEY, Michelle  y  ROUSSEAU, GG. The effects of the global recession on the work restructuring levels of managers in the South African automotive industry. S. Afr. j. econ. manag. sci. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.3, pp.346-360. ISSN 2222-3436.

The aim of this investigation was to examine the work restructuring levels of managers in the South African automotive industry, and how these levels are affected by the global economic recession. Work restructuring was investigated from the perspective of the managers' work and family involvement levels. Data was gathered using a questionnaire that was emailed to automotive industry managers throughout South Africa. Results show that no significant gender differences occur for work involvement, family involvement, or work restructuring. A practically significant, positive relationship exists between family involvement and work restructuring. Furthermore, family involvement levels were shown not to have decreased due to the economic recession. Recommendations for organisations include implementing a gender-neutral work-family policy to assist managers in restructuring their work to accommodate family responsibilities.

Palabras clave : work and family involvement; work restructuring; recession; automotive industry; JEL: J22, 44, M54.
