Work-Life-Balance

  • Bettina S. Wiese
Part of the Springer-Lehrbuch book series (SLB)

Zusammenfassung

Work-Life-Balance ist ein populärer, wenn auch unpräziser Begriff, der aus wissenschaftlicher Perspektive kein einheitliches Phänomen umfasst, sondern vielmehr ein ganzes Themengebiet, in dessen Vordergrund Fragen zur Beziehung und zum Zusammenspiel von Berufs- und Privatleben stehen. Die »Work«-Komponente bezieht sich i. d. R. auf die Erwerbsarbeit, die »Life«-Komponente auf andere Lebensbereiche wie etwa Familie, Freundschaften, Gesundheitsverhalten, soziales und kulturelles Engagement etc., wobei hier in der empirischen Forschung schwerpunktmäßig das Zusammenwirken von Erwerbsarbeit auf der einen und Familie oder Gesundheits-/Erholungsverhalten auf der anderen Seite behandelt wird. Im Fokus des vorliegenden Beitrags steht die Frage nach dem Zusammenspiel von Berufs- und Familienleben (zum Gesundheitsverhalten Kap. 12).
