Today's digitalization and the balance between work and private life among HR managers (English)
Abstract [sv]

I en värld som präglas av digitalisering och flexibilitet, så är det en utmaning att balansera alla de krav som ställs på oss, både i arbetet och privatlivet. Dagens möjligheter till flexibla scheman och tillgänglighet genom digitala kommunikationsenheter skapar både balans och obalans mellan arbete och privatliv. Många upplever att dagens digitalisering möjliggör en balans mellan arbete och privatliv, samtidigt som den också har bidragit till att arbetet inkräktar på privatlivet.

Syftet med denna studie är att få djupare förståelse för hur HR-chefer i privata organisationer upplever och erfar balansen mellan arbete och privatliv i relation till dagens digitalisering. Med denna studie hoppas vi kunna belysa både de positiva och negativa faktorer som digitaliseringen ger upphov till, och som främjar respektive hindrar balansen mellan arbete och privatliv. Vi vill också belysa hur HR-chefer upplever denna balans.

Informationen samlades genom kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta HR-chefer, från delvis olika företag.

Resultatet av en tematisk analys visade att det fanns både inre och yttre faktorer som påverkade balansen mellan arbete och privatliv. Resultatet visade också att HR-cheferna hade både positiva och negativa upplevelser av digitaliseringen i arbetslivet.

Abstract [en]

In a world characterized by digitalization and flexibility, it is a challenge to balance all the demands that are placed on us, both at work and in private life. Today's opportunities for flexible schedules and available through digital communication devices create both balance and imbalance between work and private life. Many people find that today's digitalization enables a balance between work and private life, while it has also contributed to the work encroaching private life.

The purpose of this study is to achieve a deeper understanding of how HR-managers in the private sector experience the balance between work and private life in relation to today's digitalization. With this study we hope to highlight both the positive and negative factors that digitalization causes, and which promote or hinder the balance between work and private life. We also want to highlight how HR-managers experience this balance.

The information was collected through qualitative semi-structured interviews, with eight HR managers, from partly different companies. T

he result of a thematic analysis showed that there were both inner and outer factors that influenced the balance between work and private life. The results also showed that HR-managers experienced both positive and negative factors of digitalization in work.
