The Telecommuniting a Possible Way for Work Life Balance: an Italian Study

Francesca Cilento, Eleonora Brivio

Abstract


The work-life balance is a key theme in our society and Telecommuting could be a useful tool for families. European research doesn't show a large adoption of this kind of contract. The aim of this work is to understand, through a mixed method research, when telecommuting can be a winning job strategy for women, which kind of needs it can support and who is the "effective" telecommuter. Results show the importance of the collaboration between organizations and workers, goal-oriented organizational culture and strategic employees.

 

Keywords: telecommuting, work life balance, digital divide, mixed method research, gender equality
