Conflict between work and private life : A study of the covarying factors (English)
Abstract [sv]

Samhällets strukturer förändras och gränsen mellan arbete och privatliv blir mer otydlig till följd av jämställdhet, ständig nåbarhet via teknologi och ändrade familjekonstellationer, vilket kan skapa konflikt mellan arbete och privatliv. Studiens syfte var att undersöka konflikt mellan arbete och privatliv och hur olika faktorer som socialt stöd i privatlivet, kön, arbetsplats, antal nära vänner och släktingar, ålder, antal år på arbetsplatsen och civilstatus samverkar med konflikten. Enkätundersökningen genomfördes på tre arbetsplatser, hade 45 deltagare, med en medelålder på 45,38 år, varav 13,3% män och 86,7% kvinnor. Enkäter var MOS social support survey samt Work-Family Conflict Scale och de analyserades med multipel linjär regression, oberoende t-test samt oberoende envägs-ANOVA. Studien visade att antal år på arbetsplats samverkade positivt med konflikt mellan arbete och privatliv, vilket även delar av tidigare forskning visat. Övriga undersökta faktorer i studien visade ingen statistisk signifikans vilket delvis var i linje med tidigare forskning. En möjlig slutsats är att kön, civilstatus och hemmaboende barn inte samverkade med upplevd konflikt mellan arbete och privatliv och att det kan härledas till kulturella faktorer och moderna könsroller. Upplevelsen av socialt stöd i privatlivet samverkade inte med konflikt mellan arbete och privatliv vilket står i motsats till en del av tidigare forskning.

Abstract [en]

Social structures are changing and the boundary between work and personal life is becoming more blurred as a result of gender development, constant reachability through technology and changing family constellations which can create conflict between work and private life. The study's purpose was to examine the conflict between work and private life, and how factors such as social support in private life, gender, place of work, number of close friends and relatives, age, number of years in the workplace and civil status interacts with conflict. The survey was conducted at three workplaces, had 45 participants, with an average age of 45.38 years, of which 13.3% men and 86.7% women. Surveys were MOS Social Support Survey and the Work-Family Conflict Scale and analyzed by multiple linear regression, independent t-test and independent one-way ANOVA. The study showed that the number of years of work interacted positively with conflict between work and private life, which is also part of the previous research has shown. Other factors examined in the study showed no statistical significance, which was partly in line with previous research. One conclusion is that gender, civil status, and children living at home are not colluded in the perceived conflict between work and private life and we discuss whether it can be attributed to cultural factors and modern gender roles. The perception of social support in the private life not interacted with the conflict between work and private life, which is in contrast to some previous research.
