Trouble at the border? Gender, flexibility at work and the work-home interface (ENG) 2008 - This study describes the effects of control, planning, and job autonomy on two aspects in the field of combining work and private life: receiving work-related contact outside office hours and take home from work with it. This report discusses the theory behind the findings with a focus on gender, working conditions and monitoring and reconciling work and private life. Approach The data comes from a 2002 study: National Study of the Changing Workforce. Respondents were age and were part of the workforce. The focal points of the study were: · Receiving work-related contact outside of normal office hours · Work to take home · Work-life conflict · Control, planning · Job Autonomy Conclusions Control to the planning is related to the degree to which people have work-related activities in addition to regular office hours. These effects are stronger among men. Job Autonomy in men with related classroom activities, and both men and women associated with the take home from work. In individuals with low job autonomy, there is a relationship between classroom alongside work and work-life conflict. The take home from work, it is related to the work-life conflict among people with more control over the schedule. Sociologists have long been interested in how different social roles come into conflict with each other, particularly the roles within the workplace and within the family. Recent findings and studies go beyond a simple explanation of the conflicting elements in identifying rolvervaging and mixing dimensions. This study wanted more knowledge and insight in this area by giving which two central working conditions, control, planning and job autonomy, contribute to the degree of rolvervaging and the impact this has on the work-life conflict. Ways again The most important finding is the fact that working conditions, in particular the degree of flexibility, can have on people who want to be. Available 24 hours a negative impact These findings challenge researchers to take into account both the imaginative and stressful aspects of the working conditions, especially the extent to which this is in relation to the work-life conflict and the differences between men and women in these problems.
