The permeability of boundaryless work in Spotify recruiters’ spheres : how flexibility and accessibility affect work-life balance (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att bidra med en förståelse för hur rekryterare upplever och hanterar flexibilitet, tillgänglighet och work-life balance i en multinationell och expanderande organisation präglad av det gränslösa arbetslivet. Denna förståelse är betydelsefull då det gränslösa arbetslivet innebär ett stort eget ansvar för individen, vilket skapar en utmaning för individen själv att måna om sin work-life balance och upprätthållandet av ett långsiktigt välmående. För att uppfylla studiens syfte genomfördes femton kvalitativa intervjuer med rekryterare på Spotifys rekryteringsavdelning Talent Acquisition.

Resultatet visar en positiv upplevelse av flexibilitet och tillgänglighet tillsammans med en rådande medvetenhet kring de utmaningar som följer av ständig uppkoppling, flexibilitet och tillgänglighet och hur de påverkar medarbetarnas work-life balance, då gränser tenderar att suddas ut och bli mer diffusa. Denna medvetenhet har resulterat i flertalet individuella strategier och hanteringssätt för att hantera det gränslösa arbetslivets utmaningar.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to provide an understanding of how recruiters perceive and manage flexibility, accessibility and work-life balance in an multinational and expanding organization characterized by boundaryless work. This understanding is important because the boundaryless work means a great responsibility for the individual, which creates a challenge for the individual to take care of their work-life balance and the maintenance of a long-term wellbeing. To fulfill the purpose of the study, fifteen qualitative interviews were conducted with recruiters on Spotify's recruitment department Talent Acquisition.

The result shows a positive experience of flexibility and accessibility, but also shows an awareness of the challenges of constant connectivity, flexibility and accessibility and how they affect employees' work-life balance, and that boundaries tend to become blurred and more diffuse. This awareness has resulted in several individual strategies to handle the challenges of boundaryless work.
