Insights Into Time & Place Management — Quick Insight 5 | TPM

does the influence of time & place management (tpm) policies on job performance differ by worker age?

Based on an analysis by Matthijs Bal, Ph.D., Reader in Human Resource Management, University of Bath, School of Management and Annet de Lange, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Department of Work, Stress and Health of the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

April 2014—Employers provide Time and Place Management (TPM) policies for a range of reasons, such as to help employees to manage work and family responsibilities and to improve employees’ attitudes toward their work and workplace. In addition, they hope—but often do not know for certain—that the effects of TPM policies on employee attitudes will translate into higher job performance as well. However, little research has examined the mechanisms through which TPM policies might influence job performance, and even less is known about whether these relationships differ for older and younger workers.

Key Insights

  1. TPM policy use and access both matter, but not in a straightforward way.
  2. Age is a critical factor in explaining the effect of TPM on job performance.
