Critically assesses the underpinnings and implications of the business case for the progression of women at work. Fundamentally linked to the principles of strategic HRM, the business case focuses on the business benefits that employers accrue through making the most of the skills and potential of women employees. Presents a cautiously critical analysis of the claim that the position of women at work can be furthered through a business case. Drawing on recent writings on women at work, plus case study data from the authors own research, argues that the emergence and popularity of the business case has moved the discussion about the position of women at work away from concepts such as democracy and equality to those of organizational effectiveness and competitive edges.
