This article has two main goals. The former is to introduce the "work&family" audit to the Italian public, the second is to highlight its effects within the organizations that employ such a model. In the 1990s, the Frankfurt based Hertie Public Utility Foundation developed an audit model for Germany about the job and family dovetailing that works along the example of the American family-friendly Index. The related nonprofit organization "Berufundfamilie GmbH" was established in Frankfurt to promote and facilitate the adoption of the system. The data we present here come from an inquiry conducted by the research center on family oriented business policy launched in 2005 by the University of Münster, as an initiative of Berufundfamilie. That study compares the outcomes of the research conducted in 2012 to those of the previous inquiry of 2007. The sample consists of 1,000 businesses, and is representative of the various industry sectors for all Germany. This research resulted in a quantitative assessment of the positive economic effects of the "work&family" audit policy, which may be summarized as follows: a high family-friendly index entails a sharp decrease in absences and spontaneous resignations, and increases opportunities to hire highly qualified staff.
