The relationship between working time flexibility, division of labour in the household, and parental burnout

realization time: 03. 2022 - 03. 2024

The project aims to explore if the links between paid and unpaid work are balanced in light of access to flexible working arrangements. We will also consider how flexibility arrangements impact well-being and parental satisfaction, with a particular interest in parental burnout.

In the project, we will:

  • differentiate between the real-life division of labour in the household and an ideal division of work that is in accordance with personal preferences and beliefs
  • explore the relationship between the real-life and ideal division of labour in the household, gender beliefs, and working time flexibility
  • evaluate the influence of the gap between the real-life and ideal division of labour on parental burnout
  • check if working time flexibility lowers the risk of experiencing parental burnout
