Couples that work

Jennifer Petriglieri, INSEAD Professor of Organisational Behaviour

How can dual-career couples thrive in their love and work?

While most career advice is targeted at individuals, treating major career decisions as if we’re flying solo – without partners, children, siblings, friends, or aging parents to consider – Jennifer Petriglieri reframes career advice through a new lens, helping us to balance our ambition at work with our ambition for our relationships.

Her research seeks to answer some of the key questions of our time: can both partners in a relationship have equally important careers? is it possible to juggle family commitments without sacrificing family? and does every decision require compromise?
