The group covers all aspects of flexible work including part-time work, timework, home working, shift work, flexible hours, compressed working week and other flexible work arrangements. The aim is to bring together scholars working in this area to network and discuss work in progress or recently completed. Abstracts of papers to be presented at the Study Group are invited on any aspects of flexible working. Work may be at the macro, organizational or individual level; or on empirical research that is country, region, sector or organization specific. We welcome reports on research in progress, as well as theoretical and methodological contributions.

Abstracts should be approximately 500 -1000 words. While the form might vary depending on research stage and type empirical work should typically cover the following.

  •          Paper title
