Effects of Intra-corporate Policies on the Work of Female Employees
AbstractOn the basis of a survey performed at Japanese pharmaceutical companies, we analyze the processes and the influence that family-friendly policies exert on the promotion of women employees and corporate performance through womenfs activities. In particular, Structural Equation Modeling is used to clarify complex causality between the promotion of women employees and personnel policies. The results of our analysis indicate that even if complex relations between the variables are taken into account, productive improvements due to family-friendly policies are not observed. Although family-friendly policies do not have a direct effect on the promotions or wages of women, they have an indirect effect on womenfs promotions and wage increases through the length of their tenure.
