Dutch workers and time pressure: household and workplace characteristics – Ver der Lippe

The author argues that both workplace and household characteristics must be considered when analysing employee time pressure.

They point to data that suggests job design with deadlines and a large degree of autonomy increases feelings of time pressure. These feelings are also increased for workers with young children.

These are experienced unevenly between genders, however. Men are more responsive to workplace factors, and women to those in the household.
