Author Languilaire, Jean-Charles Emile
Date 2016
English abstract
Attaining work‐life balance is one of most important needs for the 21st century global population. Traditionally, the work‐life issues have been mostly treated from a sociologic perspective and from a business/HR perspective, work‐life issues also belong to "urban studies". Indeed, from a work‐life perspective, urbanisation indicates that cities represent one context in which individuals may fulfil their "needs" or "wants" to meaningfully develop and management life domains. In line with the person‐fit model, , the city and its urban physical milieu play a role in individuals` work/non‐work boundary making process. This paper is anchored in boundary management undelying that individuals create and manage different boundaries to reach their preference for segmentation or integration. Based on visual data this research presents physical urban elements affecting boundary making. In connecting visual data with comments, this paper explains how these elements affect affecting boundary making.
