Abstract or Summary

The present paper outlines a cross-national study that has completed data collection. In total four countries have been surveyed (New Zealand, China, Tanzania and Malaysia) while five distinct peoples have been surveyed (white New Zealand, Chinese, Tanzanian’s, Malay, and New Zealand Maori – the indigenous peoples of New Zealand). The breakdown of methodology and respondents etc. is shown in Table 1. The present study addressed a cross-national study to test the similarities and differences amongst these different groups of employees. Importantly, the study includes two distinct groups never surveyed before in the work-family literature: (1) Tanzanian employees and (2) Maori employees. It is hoped that these employee groups will provide some unique understandings regarding how employees from various countries meet the challenge of managing the work-family interface, or at least, extend the level of understanding towards other peoples and cultures.
