Mars and Venus Get Stressed at Work
Friday, November 12, 2004
A University of Michigan researcher has found that work-related worries can have a major impact on the home front, particularly for working moms. Nancy Rothbard, an assistant professor of management, has found that women who are dealing with problems at work are less able to connect with their families. "This is a tough reality for women," Rothbard said in a recent interview with the Wharton Alumni Magazine. "If they aren't happy in their work, they are often less able to be involved and focused at home." Apparently, working dads don't experience the problem to quite the same degree. According to Rothbart, they're able to "segment" their work and home lives and "function well" both at home and at work.
