Family Friendly Policy Research

Family Friendly Policy Research

2015 January

In 2013, the Steering Committee on Population Policy released a consultation report on population policy in Hong Kong. The report pointed out that in dealing with the ageing population, Hong Kong needs to increase its labour force to remian competitive. It proposed to encourage home-makers to join the labour market and encourage businesses to adopt family-friendly workplace practices to meet family needs of working couples.

But how practical is the report? Are family-friendly measures common? Are the employees willing to utilise the practices provided by employers? Are the practices effective to support the employees? These are some of the questions that Dr. Lina Vyas tries to answer through her research.
