Ring, ring… why don't you leave me alone? The impact of the work mobile phone on the work-life balance

22 Nov 2006
Description

This paper looks at how the mobile phone may shape the boundaries between the public (work) and private (home) domains, and on how these boundaries are negotiated or navigated. Positive and negative impacts of the mobile phone appear to be dependant on occupation, economic and market forces, contextual factors associated with bureaucratic structures, and the reported degree of instrumental agency in mobile phone usage.
