Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht die Wirkung von unternehmerischen Work-Life Balance Initiativen fuer die emotionale Bindung der Mitarbeiter zum Unternehmen, d. h. das organisationale Commitment von Mitarbeitern im Kontext der Unternehmensberatung. Dazu wurde eine Untersuchung mit insgesamt 275 Unternehmensberaterinnen und -beratern durchgefuehrt. Die Datenanalyse erfolgte anhand eines PLS-Strukturgleichungsmodells (Partial-Least-Squares-Ansatz). Die Ergebnisse weisen darauf hin, dass auch in Beratungsorganisationen ein Zusammenhang zwischen der Nutzung von Work-Life Balance Initiativen und dem affektiven Commitment von Mitarbeitern besteht und zwar sowohl direkt als auch ueber den Einfluss der Initiativennutzung auf einen so reduzierten Work-Life Conflict. Darueber hinaus konnte ein positiver Einfluss der Unterstuetzung durch den Vorgesetzten fuer die Inanspruchnahme von Work-Life Balance Initiativen gezeigt werden. (The impact of corporate work-life balance initiatives on employee commitment: An empirical investigation in the German consultancy sector. This paper focuses on the impact of corporate work-life balance initiatives on the emotional attachment of employees to their organization, i.e. organisational commitment in consultancies, based on a study of 275 female and male consultants. The results which were analyzed using a structural equation modelling approach (PLS partial-least-squares) support the notion that the use of work-life balance initiatives is related to affective employee commitment, both directly, and indirectly by reducing perceived work-life conflict. A significant positive relationship between supervisor support and the use of work-life balance initiatives was also supported by the data.)
