Resumen

LEIVA GOMEZ, Sandra  y  COMELIN FORNES, Andrea. Reconciling work and family life: Evaluation of the IGUALA program in a mining company in the Tarapacá Region. Polis [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.42, pp.345-368. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682015000300016.

The focus of this study is the implementation of the IGUALA program in relation to measures for reconciling work and family life in a mining company in the Tarapacá Region of Chile. Two theoretical approaches that sustain such policies are discussed: genderfare and the rights approach. The evaluation of the actions implemented by the company determined that theoretical perspectives on reconciling family life and work were not considered; that the company faced several obstacles on the implementation of the actions which limited their impact for beneficiaries; and that the beneficiaries were satisfied with company policy in this area in spite of that limited impact. These findings highlight the company’s weaknesses in terms of the introduction of reconciliation measures, as they are closer to an assessment than an effective public policy for improving family-labor reconciliation.

Palabras clave : Reconciling family and work life; social policy; gender; IGUALA program; Chile.
