V.Y. Haines and S. St-Onge

Working Papers from Montreal - Relations industrielles

Abstract: Drawing from boundary theory, this study exmined the influence of both spouse and family social support on telecommuting outcomes. The analyses, conducted with a sub-sample of telecommuters who had an employed spouse and a sub-sample of telecommuters who had at leat one child living at home, revealed a pattern of generally positive outcomes resulting from higher levels of home domain social support for telecommuting. Results are discussed in relation to the activities of creating and maintaining boundaries within a telecommuting arrangement.
