Last week we asked how spouses affect your work or the work of your colleagues.
Q: What aspects of your worklife does your spouse or significant other impact? (1 = very little to 5 = very much)
Work Schedule: Mean 3.0 Std Dev. 1.0
Work Travel: Mean 3.0 Std Dev. 1.0
Vacation Schedule: Mean 4.2 Std Dev 1.3
Weekend Work: Mean 3.2 Std Dev 0.8
Call ins: Mean 2.5 Std Dev 1.3
Then things got interesting when we asked this question:
Q: What do you perceive is the impact on your colleagues' worklife of their spouse or significant other?
Work Schedule: Mean 3.4 Std Dev. 1.8
Work Travel: Mean 3.8 Std Dev. 1.6
Vacation Schedule: Mean 3.4 Std Dev 1.3
Weekend Work: Mean 3.8 Std Dev 1.3
Call ins: Mean 3.0 Std Dev 1.8
I guess not surprisingly, folks think their colleagues are more impacted by their spouses than they themselves are--except when it comes to vacaction.
This week we are giving you a break--no quiz.
