Time Work: Gendered Work-Family Accounts and Strategies Among Professionals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Conceptual, theoretical and empirical advances in the work-family field require capturing the dynamic and often gendered strategies people use to achieve a sense of life-course fit, defined as cognitive appraisals by individuals of the adequacy of their resources in relation to their commitments. Assessments of fit shift over the life course as resources and claims also shift, leading to greater or less congruence between the two. Qualitative analysis of the discourse of professional employees suggests that work-family is increasingly about ‘doing’ timework. Such timework consists of both accounts of overloads and misfit and discourse about actual strategies to better align life’s multiple dimensions. Both accounts and strategies occur in the context of prevailing work-time, work-family and gender schema producing institutionalized, taken-for-granted work-time expectations. Accounts and strategies take place in the context of the new uncertainties, rising time pressures, and insecurities characterizing contemporary paid work. Our analysis reveals three prevailing timework strategies: prioritizing time, blocking off time, and shifting time.
