Dr. Sandra Burud
Research Faculty, Claremont Graduate University Center for Educational Studies
Research Associate, Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Quality of Life Center
Dr. Burud lead the National Employer Supported Child Care Project, a national study of employer child care initiatives, from 1981-1984 and co-authored Employer Supported Child Care: Investing in Human Resources, the first "how to" book about child care benefits for employers. In 1998 Sandy authored the National Trend Study of Work-Site Child Care.
Dr. Burud served as the project director for the Work/Life Business Case book project. The Claremont Graduate University is sponsoring the project through the Drucker School of Management and the Center for Educational Studies, under a grant by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. The project team will write a book exploring the evidence about whether innovative work practices that support employees' quality of work and personal life balance contribute to business success in a measurable way. The book contains a compendium and critique of the research from the work/life and related business fields, new metrics and tools for businesses to adapt the research for their own decision-making and will include contributions by business authors who focus on human capital-related topics and their relationship to business results.
