Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This study aimed to examine the relation between remote work and work-life balance, taking into account the moderating factors household size and socioeconomic status, assessed on the basis of the participants' salary range. A total of 78 participants, aged between 21 to 65 years old, including 28 males and 50 females, participated in the study. The data was obtained through online questionnaires and analysed using correlation and moderation analyses. However, no significant associations were found between any of the variables. These findings might suggest that the impact of remote work on work-life balance may not be influenced by household size or socioeconomic status, at least within the context of this study. This project provides insights into the interplay between remote work, household characteristics, socioeconomic status, and work-life balance, contributing to a deeper understanding of the factors that influence employees' ability to achieve work-life balance. Further research is needed to better understand the complex dynamics between remote work, work-life balance and the various demographic variables.
