dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to identify familial, as well as organizational factors that support and inhibit the development or maintenance of healthy lifestyle behaviors of Lands' End, Inc. employees. Participation by the twelve employees and eight spouses was based on employees' Multidimensional Health Locus of Control Questionnaire scores. Participants answered questions in during a 20minute semi-standard interview. The data was analyzed and interpreted, resulting in four emergent themes. The themes included: a perception of family support, a perception of organization support, a perception of barriers to family support, and a perception of barriers to organizational support for healthy lifestyle behaviors. The results of this study support the literature on support mechanisms for healthy lifestyle behaviors and provides suggestions which may be useful for future study in this area.
