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.

Community Reviews. Showing The program was adopted because it would motivate employees. In Best Buy the work seems to be much, leaving the employees on dilemma when it comes to carrying out their other activities. For instance Janssen who works in the finance department, is a mother of twins and has to pickup her children form day care. Her biggest challenge is that she does not have anyone to cover for her.
This places the staff at Best Buy under pressure because there is no time left to carry out other activities and they cannot leave their office cubes because they have no one to replace them. Darrell Owen for instance worked for three days and night consecutively and landed in the hospital after that for fatigue issues.
The company used to embrace a culture of long working hours and would encourage workers through bonuses. Janssen has always had it rough in the mornings, because she had to leave early before her children wake up because they would beg her to stay on. This was straining Janssen because she did not have ample time to spend with her children before she went to work. Pagano would work every day, put in extra hours and also work on Saturday and Sunday.
This made him distant from his family; he now wishes the new system was introduced earlier because he could have been a better father and husband.
Janssen, Owen and Pagano show the great strain of overworking in companies and the negative effects it has on family Hodson Best Buy policy was draining the employees emotionally and physically, as a result of the work schedules assigned. This was for the first two divisions chosen to experiment the ROWE program. Judy Thompson, the principle of culture is also happy with the change because the employees communicate now easily. With the paging devices and cell phones the employee conduct business anywhere they are.

Judy thanks to the system can tell where the employees are with the white boards where they leave messaged, while out of the office. Janssen now with the new program does not have to leave early for work, and now has time for her children at home. She has her target which she is to meet and has no pressure because Best Buy employees are free to design their work schedules.
