Can flextime and telework reduce the conflict between work life and personal life? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idag är flexibla arbetssätt såsom flextid och distansarbete vanligt förekommande, vilket kan komma att resultera i en konflikt mellan arbetsliv och privatliv. Denna studiens syfte var därför att undersöka om det fanns några samband mellan inställning till flextid och distansarbete och i vilken mån man upplever en konflikt mellan arbetsliv och privatliv samt om flextid och distansarbete påverkar i vilken mån man upplever en konflikt mellan arbetsliv och privatliv. Studien hade en kvantitativ ansats och bestod av en enkätundersökning med frågor kring flextid, distansarbete och konflikten mellan arbetsliv och privatliv. Respondenterna i studien bestod av 92 handläggare som arbetade inom en kommun (67% kvinnor och 33% män), (födelseår, M = 1970, SD = 11,05). Alla respondenterna arbetade utifrån samma flextidsavtal samt utan en ledande befattning. För att tolka resultaten användes tidigare forskning och resultatanalyser gjordes i form av Pearsons korrelation och t-test. Resultatet visade på att merparten av respondenterna uppfattade flextid och distansarbete som positivt. Resultatet visade på att de som var mer positiva till distansarbete även upplevde en högre grad av konflikten mellan arbetsliv och privatliv. Vidare framkom det att de som var positiva till distansarbete även var positiva till flextid. I fritextensvaren återfinns kommentarer från respondenterna som även visade på negativa aspekter av flextid och distansarbete.

Abstract [en]

Today, flexible ways of working such as flextime and telework are a common occurrence, which could result in a conflict between work life and private life. The purpose of this study was therefore to investigate whether there was a relation between the attitude to flextime and telework as well as in what way an individual experiences a conflict between work life and personal life and finally, if flextime and telework affects the extent an individual experiences a conflict between work life and private life. This study had a quantitative approach and consisted of a survey with questions regarding flextime, telework and the conflict between work life and private life. The respondents of the study consisted of 92 administrative officials working at a municipality (67% women och 33% men), (year of birth, M = 1970, SD = 11,05). Every respondent was bound by the same flextime contract and none of them had a leading position. To interpret the results, previous research was used as well as result analyses, specifically Pearson correlations and t-tests. The results indicated that the majority of the respondents considered flextime and telework positively. The results also showed that those that had a positive attitude to telework also experienced the conflict between work life and private life to higher level. Furthermore, the more positive an individual is towards flextime the more positive is an individual towards telework. In the free-text answers it was possible to find answers from the respondents that showed some of the negative aspects of flextime and telework.
