A new organisation of time over working life (info sheet)
This information sheet provides a brief overview of the report (EF0336) on time issues. Changes to traditional gender roles and the division of work are forcing a rethink of conventional work-life patterns. Individuals are increasingly calling for a better quality of life, while employers require greater flexibility in the workplace. The report looks at how to address these changing needs by reorganising the use of time over the entire life course, specifically focusing on the individual’s working years. A short summary has been prepared by the Foundation’s research managers (EF0364). Information sheets set out a brief overview of each project, forming a useful introduction point. They answer key questions as to: What is the project about? Why is the research being carried out? What are the findings/objectives and whom do they concern? When will the project be completed? How might the findings be translated into action?
