Abstract [en]

The purpose of this quantitative study is to investigate how flexibility in work affects the conflict between work and family and job satisfaction. In the study, we put a special focus on the importance of gender and occupational classification. The results of the study shows that men have somewhat more flexibility in work than women even when we check for working hours, education, income and qualification level in the profession. High flexibility in work increases the likelihood that family interfere with work, but the result did not show that it affected if work was interfering with family. Women with high flexibility feel that the spheres of work and family play over each other more than both gender groups with low flexibility and men with high flexibility. We also found that higher degrees of flexibility at work are linked to higher levels of job satisfaction.
