Effects of working time patterns on creative R&D work outcome
Kokkuvõte inglise keeles:
Favourable working conditions for R&D employees help to improve the use of their creative potential, supporting knowledge intensification in the economy at large. We present fully observed recursive structural equation estimates, based on data from our original repeated survey of Estonian creative R&D employees on a sample of 153 individuals from eleven entities. Selection into flexible working time is strongly driven by gender. Males opt for jobs with flexible schedules more likely than females. Higher educational level increases selection into creativity intense positions. The share of non-creative work tasks reduces R&D employees’ contentment with their work outcomes, and lowers – at least in their perception – the productiveness of work in terms of providing new knowledge or creating value. The mean and median of daily working hours are as high as 10 in the creative R&D employees in our sample. The high number of working hours is needed to achieve satisfaction with the work results as well as to earn external recognition. We find employees of evening as well as morning type to have a considerably higher satisfaction with their work results, compared to employees with no distinct morningness-eveningness profile. Our findings stress the benefits of flexible work arrangements in creative R&D jobs.
