Abstract [en]

This study focuses on how work affects the private-life and the balance that is perceived between these two spheres. Earlier studies shows how the labour market has changed through out history, and they mention different approaches to work and private-life, the consequences of borderless work and the value of work engagement. To answer the purpose of this study the terms work effort, control and the willingness to work is central. The study also explored how conflict was handled and what the consequences of conflict and unbalanced work life could be. To study this, respondents from two organizations were chosen, one organisation in an early stage and one established organisation, to be able to see what differences in organizations does to the perception of work-life balance. The empiric material was gathered with the help of semi- structured interviews from respondents in each organization. The empiric material is analysed with the theoretical standpoints presented in chapter 3. The willingness to work seems to be central when it comes to the perception of work-life balance. Social support seems to affect the individuals willingness to work or the control of the work situation. Conflict seemed to gain a certain significance when it came the perception of work-lifebalance was non-existant. Consequences of the conflicts could be used as tools to see if the perception of work-life balance is about to to change. One explanation to why the perception of balance is different between the two organisations could be the fact that the respondents in the recently established organization is personally invested in said organization on a higher level than the respondents in the established organization.
