Overview

The result of a study conducted in Ireland, Germany, Denmark, and Italy, this work examines the impact of information and communication technology-based working methods (such as telecommuting) on family structures and circumstances. The study looks at work-family interactions from sociological, organizational, technological, and psychological perspectives. The survey covered four household types: couples with children, couples without children, single parent families, and families with elderly or disabled dependents. Intended to serve as an aid to European policy makers, the study explores such questions as the distributions of costs and benefits between work and family, impact on roles and equality, implications for childcare, management of work-family conflict, usage and requirements of technology, and support factors for "eWorking."
