Provides free work more freedom : A study of balance between work and personal life (English)
Abstract [en]

This qualitative study treats the construction and maintenance of balance between work and private life and how flexibility in the workplace is perceived. The study was conducted using semi-structured interviews and these have been conducted in five large companies around Gothenburg. The analysis and results are based on the phenomenographic method approach and the final results were four themes: Balance, Flexibility, Combining family and work and lifelong learning with related subcategories. The result shows that the construction and maintenance of balance between work and personal life is something that is tied to the indi-viduals and the current situation in life. Two of the most common strategies to maintain a dis-tinction proved to be planning as well as other activities, in order to move the focus away from the work. In the larger picture flexibility of work turned out to be something that all re-spondents are in favor of, and not perceived as something stressful

Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie behandlar konstruerandet och upprätthållandet av balans mellan ar-bete och privatliv samt hur flexibilitet i arbetslivet uppfattas. Studien har genomförts med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer och dessa har utförts på fem stora företag runt omkring Göteborg. Analysen och resultatet utgår från den fenomenografiska metodansatsen och slut-produkten blev fyra teman: Balans, Flexibilitet, Kombination familj och arbete samt Livslångt lärande med tillhörande underkategorier. Resultatet visar på att konstruerandet och upprätt-hållandet av balans mellan arbete och privatliv är någonting som är knutet till individerna och den nuvarande livssituationen. Två av de mest förekommande strategierna för att hålla en distinktion visade sig vara planering samt aktivera sig med annat för att flytta fokus bort från arbetet. Flexibilitet i arbetet visade sig på det stora hela vara någonting som alla respondenter ställer sig positiva till och inte uppfattar som någonting stressande
