Work-Family Conflict of male business travelers [1.7 mb]
Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

The aim of this diploma thesis is to explore the work-family conflicts of male international business travelers living in dual career couples or dual career families. On grounds of the theoretical foundations and the literature review, an empirical study was conducted based on ten interviews with male international business travelers living in dual career couples or families. The results of the empirical data show that men travelling internationally face a double burden because of simultaneously fulfilling two roles, the role as main provider and the role as caretaking partner, husband and father. International business travel additionally complicates the situation because time spent travelling equals time away from home. Male international business travelers therefore are not able to fulfill family and social obligations because work demands most of the mens time resources. As a result, male international business travelers face a similar situation as their female counterparts. Although men try to get more involved in family responsibilities, international business trips and office work often cross private plans. This leads to heightened levels of stress and strain among the male international business travelers and their families. This further increases the perceived number of overall work-family conflicts of men travelling internationally.
