Remixing Work, Family and Leisure: Teleworkers experiences of everyday life

By: Margo Hilbrecht, Donna Lero

This study explored the impact of telework on daily work, family and leisure activities through interviews with 51 teleworkers employed in a Canadian financial organisation. Approximately half of the semi-structured interviews took place in person, the rest by telephone. One important research question was whether remixing of work, family and lesure among teleworks has any impact on gendered practices and division of labour in the home. An article based on this study was published in New Technology, Work and Employment in July, 2013. Read the abstract online.
