Work-life conflict and facilitation
Family-friendly working practices
Gender issues in the workplace
Dr Beauregard's research interests are centred on the interface between paid work and home life. To date, her work has focused on the causes and consequences of conflict between these two domains, as well as the organisational and legislative contexts in which work-related and personal responsibilities interact. Works in progress include an examination of the effects of family adjustment on turnover among truck drivers working away from home for long periods of time, as well as an investigation into how employees may react with counterproductive work behaviours to the perceived fairness of information provided about organisational work-life balance practices, depending on their personality traits. Future projects include an exploration of the role of socialisation into a profession, and the impact of formal and informal mentors, on the formation of professionals' expectations for work-life balance and on their choices and preferences for work-nonwork boundary management.
