This is a guest post from the School of Business:
Wake Forest School of Business Associate Professor Julie Holliday Wayne was named an “extraordinary contributor” to work and family research. At the 2018 Work-Family Researchers Network Conference held June 21-23 in Washington, D.C., the organization recognized the top 60 scholars whose scholarship has made an impact on the field.
The selection came after researchers at Brigham Young University analyzed metrics for researchers in the field including their publishing articles and books, making landmark contributions that shaped the field, dissemination of research to policy makers and the public, providing service to the field, and reputation among work-family scholars.
In her research, Wayne studies how people’s work and personal lives intersect and how this affects their attitudes and behaviors at work as well as that of their spouses. She and her colleagues were among the first to study how work and family can benefit one another (work-family enrichment). Her research examines the meaning of work-life balance, considers factors that promote balance, and shows that employees having greater balance is good business for organizations.
Wayne’s research has been published in leading journals and books as well as in Fast Company, FoxNews.com, Forbes.com, Psychology Today, the Chicago Tribune, and Parents Magazine, among others. She serves on editorial boards and consults and conducts workshops to help organizations maximize their employees’ potential at work and in their personal lives.
“This is an esteemed group of scholars from multiple disciplines from institutions around the world,” said Michelle Roehm, the School’s vice dean of faculty. “We are pleased WFRN has recognized Julie Wayne for this significant achievement based on her years of research and contributions to the field.”
