Author(s): L. Lilleoja -
Type: Book chapter
The purpose of the study is to analyse the extent to which differences exist in the perception of possibilities for reconciliation of work and family life by ethnic minorities and Estonians, and how perceptions are related with basic human values. The main conclusion were following: - The effect of basic values on perception of reconciliation of work and family life is rather small, but it is ethnically differentiated. - Work-family conflict is more perceived among those Estonians who value success and power, while for ethnic minorities it is more perceived among those who value self-direction. - Persons who belong to ethnic minority perceive less frequently work-family conflict, if family is priority for them. - Appreciation of wealth is increasing the dissatisfaction with work and with the balance of time spent on work and other activities. - Among Estonians self-direction correlates positively with income, which means that persons who value personal freedom earn in average more. - Among all respondents values which enforce family-life are much more valued than those which enforce work-life. - Based on the change of structure of basic human values over the last years, for Estonians the important of work life has slightly increased, while for the ethnic minorities trends are contradictory.
