    In this research paper we present three consecutive studies exploring family-friendly policies and culture in Spanish organizations. In a first study based on a representative sample of 135 organizations we looked at the reasons why firms decide to adopt these policies. In a second study we collected examples and arguments by interviewing the human resource managers of the top 20 firms. Lastly, for four of these companies we were able to contrast employee perceptions with human resource managers' opinions. Results and implications for policy and research are discussed.
