Abstract

This study views the adoption of Alternative Work Arrangement (AWA) programs from the perspective of the managers in a major information-intensive corporation. It explores the impact of organization, organizational fit, and individual variables on the likelihood of adopting AWA programs. Only employee approval and the suitability of the programs consistently correlated significantly to the likelihood of their adoption. Managers who had lower performance, as measured by budget performance and the results of employee satisfaction surveys, tended to view the adoption of part-time and job-sharing programs as more likely. The results suggest the importance of managerial support and training in the success of AWA programs.
