“I actually do not want to work when I am not getting paid” : How professionals working with information technology and communications’ perceived health is affected in a completely connected Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

Most professionals working in the field of information technology and communication are able to also work with digital media outside working hours, which could blur the distinction between work and private life. The aim of the study is to examine how the perceived health of these professionals is affected when the boundaries between work and private life blur and to identify the positive and negative aspects of using digital media outside of working hours. The effects on the actual health of professionals working in this line of work are not being examined in this study. Based on existing literature on aspects of working with digital media outside working hours, a quantitative and qualitative survey was distributed to employees working with information technology and/or communication. The study was complemented by additional qualitative interviews. The results suggest that the perceived health of the majority of respondents was negatively impacted by working with digital media outside of working hours. The main reason for this is that they feel overwhelmed with information. One of the conclusions of this study is that respondents may be negatively influenced by the use of digital media outside of working hours but that this does not have to be the case necessarily. A further conclusion is that there are complex combinations of advantages and disadvantages from these aspects which affect respondents more individually. In addition, the study shows that companies need to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of using digital media outside working hours in order to provide healthy working conditions for their employees.
