Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur chefer upplever flexibelt arbete samt hur de använder sig av gränsdragningsstrategier för att hantera balansen mellan arbete och privatliv. Studien har baserats på frågeställningar gällande hur chefer ser på det flexibla arbetet, hur krav/kontroll/stöd och balans påverkar chefers hälsa, hur förhållandet mellan arbete och privatliv ser ut samt vilka gränsdragningsstrategier som används. Studien visar på att cheferna har en positiv uppfattning om flexibelt arbete men att det finns svårigheter kring hur flexibiliteten ska hanteras. Vidare visar resultatet i studien att cheferna önskar en balans mellan arbete och privatliv, vilket de får genom en hårddragen gräns som vissa av cheferna dock saknar. Resultatet visar också på att cheferna är i behov av stöd från arbetsgivare, chef och omgivning och att de uppskattar ett stödjande och öppet klimat där de tillåts diskutera kring arbetssituation och hur de hanterar det flexibla arbetslivet.

En kvalitativ metod valdes för studien som sedan genomfördes i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer tillsammans med sex chefer som valdes på grund av deras flexibla arbetsliv. Svaren från intervjuerna analyserades sedan gentemot relevanta teorier och tidigare studier inom ämnet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how managers experience flexible work and how they use work balance strategies to be able to handle the balance between work and private life. The study is based on questions regarding how managers experience flexible work, how high demand-low control and balance affects managers health, how the relationship between work and private life looks like and what work balance strategies that are being used. The study shows that the managers have positive experiences with flexible work but that there are difficulties with how the flexibility should be handled. Furthermore, the results of the study show that the managers would like to have a certain balance between work and private time which they get with set limits. However, some managers lack these limits. The results also show that the managers require support from their managers, employers and work environment and that they appreciate a supporting and open work environment where they are allowed to discuss their work situation and how they handle flexible work.

A qualitative method was chosen for the study which was done as a semistructured interviews with six managers who were chosen because of their flexible work. The answers from the interviews were analysed and compared with relevant theories and earlier studies in the subject.
