Experienced difficulties in combining work and private life : A quantitative study of conflicts between work and private life, job satisfaction and number of children (English)
Abstract [sv]

Dagens individer innehar olika roller i arbetslivet och privatlivet som konkurrerar om en individs tid och energi, vilket kan skapa svårigheter att uppnå balans mellan dessa båda områden. Denna studie undersöker förhållandet mellan konflikter mellan arbetsliv och privatliv samt arbetstillfredsställelse. Individens olika roller och de åtaganden dessa innefattar kan ge upphov till konflikter mellan arbetslivet och privatlivet. Detta gör det intressant att även undersöka en särskilt värdefull aspekt av privatlivet, nämligen antal barn och dess samband med konflikterna. Studiens deltagare bestod av 87 medarbetare varav 52 kvinnor och 35 män i åldrarna 26-58 år (M = 48) och de instrument som användes för att mäta konflikterna var Work-Family and Family-Work Scales och för att mäta aspekter av arbetstillfredsställelse användes delar av Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire version II. Studien fann ett negativt samband mellan upplevd konflikt arbetsliv med privatliv och tillfredsställelse med arbetet (r = -.31, p < .01), vilket är i linje med resultat av tidigare forskning. Mellan antal barn och upplevd konflikt privatliv med arbetsliv fanns ett positivt samband (r = .39, p < .001). Resultaten indikerar att upplevd svårighet att kombinera arbetsliv med privatliv tyder på en lägre grad av tillfredsställelse med arbetet, samtidigt som fler barn kan tyda på en högre upplevd svårighet att kombinera privatlivets åtaganden med arbetslivet. Upplevda konflikter mellan arbetsliv och privatliv predicerar tillfredsställelse med arbetet till 10%.

Abstract [en]

Individuals of today have different roles in their work and in their private lives that are competing for an individual's time and energy, which can create difficulties in achieving balance between these two areas. This study investigates the relationship between conflicts between work and private life and job satisfaction. The individual's roles and the commitments these contain can make it difficult to find balance between work and private life. This makes it interesting to also investigate a particularly valuable aspect of private life, namely the number of children and its relationship with the conflicts. The study's participants consisted of 87 employees, of which 52 were women and 35 were men aged 26-58 years (M = 48). The instruments used to measure the conflicts were Work-Family and Family-Work Scales and to measure aspects of job satisfaction, parts of Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire Version II were used. The study found a significant negative correlation between experienced work-private life conflict and satisfaction with work (r = -.31, p = .004), which is in line with results of previous research. Between the number of children and experienced private life-work conflict, a positive relationship was found (r = .39, p = < .001). The results indicate that experienced difficulty in combining work with private life indicates a lower degree of satisfaction with work, while more children may indicate a higher experienced difficulty in combining the commitments of private life with work. Experienced conflicts between work and private life predicted satisfaction with work to 10%.
