Non-standard working hours and employee well-being

Main goal of the project is to investigate how the postindustrial, service-oriented economy changes working time and leisure practices and what kind of effects it has on employee well-being. The research topic is timely and important, as a large part of the public debate on atypical or non-standard working hours is based more on assumptions than on empirical research. Have non-standard working time arrangements actually become more common in Finland? Are non-standard working hours more risk or an opportunity? Are non-standard working hours also unsocial? How different working time profiles are related to perceived health, work satisfaction and the reconciliation of work and family spheres?
The project employs representative Finnish time use and working conditions surveys combined with register data to study the trends in prevalence of various non-standard working time arrangements (weekend work, shift-work, evening and night work) and their effects on employee well-being.
