Research published in the Journal of Marriage and Family tracked employees with children, as they switched to a results-only work arrangement.
A results-only system leaves staff free to work at their own pace, whenever they like. The research compared the change in behaviour with the surveyed responses of the employees, and saw some interesting results.
While parents changed their work times and habits minimally, they reported much greater satisfaction.
There were notable differences between mothers and fathers, and those who had previously skipped family mealtimes saw the greatest benefits.
