Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyze how different working hours affects the balance between one's personal life and work life. The concept Quality of Life (QoL)  and Work-Life Balance (WLB), divided into Work-family conflict (WFC) and Family-work conflict (FWC) was used to measure balance. In addition, there was an interest in investigate if WLB correlated with QoL. The study was conducted by a questionnaire which was distributed on an industrial enterprise in mid-Sweden where the participant answered questions both from the perspective of working nighttime and daytime. Netemeyers, Boless and McMurrians (1996) scale, divided into FWC and WFC, was used to measure WLB, while Lindner et al, (2016) Brunnsviken Brief Quality of Life (BBQ) was used to measure QoL. The result of this study showed that working daytime, compared to nighttime, is associated with a better WLB score, and that there are differences between WFC and FWC. There was so significant correlation between WLB and QoL. 

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur olika arbetstider inverkar på balansen mellan privatliv och arbetsliv. Begreppen Work-Life Balance (WLB), uppdelat i Work-family conflict (WFC) och Family-work conflict (FWC), samt Quality of Life (QoL) användes för att mäta balansen. Dessutom fanns intresset att undersöka om WLB korrelerade med QoL. Studien baserades på en enkät som delades ut på ett industriföretag i Mellansverige där deltagarna fick svara på frågor utifrån både ett dagtid- och nattperspektiv. Mätverktygen som användes för att mäta WLB var Netemeyers, Boless och McMurrians (1996) skala, uppdelat i FWC och WFC. För att mäta QoL användes Lindner et al, (2016) Brunnsviken Brief Quality of Life (BBQ). Resultatet för studien visade att dagskiftsarbete är associerat med ett bättre WLB än arbete vid nattskift, men också att det råder skillnader mellan WFC och FWC. Det fanns ingen signifikant korrelation mellan WLB och QoL
