Bissett professor Rachael Pettigrew, PhD., was recently featured by the Mount Royal University Alumni Association. Rachael teaches organizational behaviour and human resources and her research focus is on organizational culture and policies surrounding employees’ work-life responsibilities with a focus on gender. In this feature, Rachael shares her research on evolving legislation and parental leave.
“Employers can no longer make gendered assumptions about which applicant or employee will be more likely to experience work interruptions or be interested in extensive travel. As such, I would encourage employers to evaluate their policies for gendered and heterocentric language to avoid unintentionally dissuading individuals from policy usage.”
