The big challenge of combining work life with personal life for both men and women : A quantitative study of high school teachers' perception of Work-Life Balance (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om upplevelsen av Work-Life Balance (uppdelat på Family-Work Conflict och Work-Family Conflict) var beroende av kön och av huruvida deltagarna hade barn under 13 år eller inte. Studien syftade även till att undersöka om kvantitativa arbetskrav och beslutskrav kunde predicera WLB.

 En webbenkätundersökning användes för att genomföra studien, i vilken lärare från 10 olika gymnasieskolor i Sverige deltog. Totalt besvarade 125 gymnasielärare enkäten, varav 103 enkäter var fullständiga och användes i studien. Resultaten visade att män upplevde mer WFC än kvinnor samt att deltagare med barn under 13 år rapporterade större FWC än deltagare som inte hade det. Resultatet visade även att kvantitativa arbetskrav predicerade WFC, alltså att höga kvantitativa arbetskrav innebar att arbetslivet kom i konflikt med familjelivet, 30,5 % av variationen i WFC kan förklaras av variationen i kvantitativa arbetskrav. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate whether the experience of the Work- Life Balance (divided on Family -Work Conflict and Work -Family Conflict) was dependent on gender and whether the participants had children under 13 years old or not. The study also aimed to investigate whether quantitative work demands and decision demands could predict WLB. The study was conducted as a web survey, in which teachers from 10 different high schools in Sweden participated. A total of 125 surveys were submitted, 103 of these were complete surveys and were used in the study. The results of the study showed that men experienced WFC more than women and participants that had children under the age of 13 reported a higher level of FWC than participants that did not have children under the age of 13. The result also showed that quantitative work demands predicted WFC, thus high quantitative work demands resulted in a bigger conflict between work life and personal life, 30, 5 % of the variation in WFC can be explained by the variation in quantitative work demands.
