Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 130-130 str.Subject(s): New ways of working, croatian employees, employee well-being, work-family interaction eng In: Horizons of Psychology / Komidar, L. - Ljubljana : Društvo psihologov Slovenije 13th Alps-Adria Psychology ConferenceAbstract: New ways of working (NWW) refer to flexible work design usually including: flexible work time-schedule, location for work, and control over (electronic) communication used for work. Growing number of companies enables their employees to work flexibly, since the research show it is beneficial for both their productivity and work-related well-being. Nevertheless, it is still not clear how NWW impact the work-family interaction, calling for future studies to examine the consequences of NWW among persons varying in individual differences. Therefore, the goal of this study was to examine the benefits that NWW have on employees’ well-being and work-family interaction, in various groups of Croatian employees. Participants were 320 employees of various Croatian organizations, heterogeneous regarding sociodemographic characteristics, employed in various sectors on various positions. Participants completed an on-line questionnaire which included The new ways of working scale, Work-family conflict scale, The recovery experience questionnaire, The Job Affective Well-being scale and Satisfaction with life scale. Also, we collected data on participants’ sociodemographic and work-related characteristics. The results showed that there were significant differences in representation of NWW in groups of employees varying in demographic and work- related characteristics. In addition, based on correlations with family- and subjective well- being criteria, we can conclude that not all groups of employees benefit from flexible work design to the same extent. Hence, organizational support for encouraging flexibility in work should be customized to better suit every employee.
