The effect of working from home on time pressure and work-life conflict

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The pandemic has urged several drastic measures to be taken. One of them is the shift from work from the office to working from home (WFH). This arrangement has affected employees' time pressure and work-life conflict (WLC), both of which are work-related stressors. To address the issue, this study aims at investigating the effect of WFH on WLC, with time pressure as a mediator on non-start-up private-sector employees in the Greater Jakarta Area. The data were collected from 224 employees through online surveys and analyzed using SEM. It was found that WFH reduces time pressure and WLC. Also, time pressure partially mediated the relationship between WFH and WLC. This study highlights that WFH could reduce work-related stressors. This study can be used as a basis for the management of non-start-up private companies in the Greater Jakarta Area to offer flexible working arrangements such as WFH to its employees. By implementing WFH, management is expected to lessen employees' sense of time pressure.
