Abstract

Working time has long been a central element of political and social debate. The duration, organization and predictability of working time raise questions about the health, well being and wider social life of workers, and about productivity, efficiency and the competitiveness of enterprises. The focus of the survey presented in this report is also pertinent to another aspect of the working time debate: the need to increase employment rates in line with the Lisbon strategy. This immediately raises the issue of attracting more people into employment and retaining them there. In particular, it is intended that employment rates for women and for older workers should increase, and policy debate has focused on the steps needed in order for this to happen. To implement policies, which make it possible to combine work with other aspects of life such as Caring – for children and elderly relatives in particular – is one, and perhaps the most important. But modern life makes many demands on people‟s time, and working time arrangements must take account of this if employment rates are to increase. The objective of the research is to assist with the complexities of working time policy and work–life balance and provide a planned and systematic approach to work-life balance and also to assist employees to combine employment with their family life, caring responsibilities and with personal life outside the workplace. Keywords: competitiveness, employment, Lisbon strategy, productivity Work-Life Balance
