Abstract

Organisations today require great flexibility, multi-skilling, team working and a rethinking of the way in which work is structured to meet the fast changing and competitive nature of doing business in the 21st century. The effects of globalisation and the rapid changes that technology has brought to every aspect of our lives has created new pressures on organisations and its employees on how best to meet customers' needs and trying to have a balance and have boundaries around working and non working time.

The objective of the research into how people use ICT to balance this juggling act of work and non work time was to find out if ICT enables one to achieve a balance or if the opposite occurs and that the availability of all the various ICT systems actually contribute to extending a person's working day.
