Work-sharing is a tripartite agreement between an employer, a group of workers and the Employment Insurance Board. If all three parties agree, the program provides income assistance for employees who would be eligible for EI benefits and who are temporarily working a reduced work program for a period of time with reduced activity. The objective of the programme is «to avoid redundancies when the normal level of activity, outside the employer`s control, is temporarily reduced.» The news media began to cover job sharing in earnest in the 1970s and 1980s. [2] The practice has most often been described as a women-friendly solution, as summed up in an Associated Press article, «a trade-off between full-time domestic work and full-time employment.» [3] For an employer, the division of labour is an advantage, since it has two valuable collaborators, thus increasing intellectual capital and experience. [12] Job sharing can also prevent future staff burnouts from leading to highly stressed careers while making the work environment more enjoyable for all. The success of employment and sharing mating creates a mutual relationship and feels responsible for each other, which increases the performance achieved together. Studies have shown that net productivity increases when two people share the same 40-hour job, making the employer more efficient and more than likely profitable. Jeremy Hayman, senior lecturer at auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, specializing in human resources management and industrial relations, collected data and completed an office staff questionnaire at a major university in Western Australia. [9] Although the study was limited to university staff, the main and recognized idea that the flexibility offered by the division of labour can promote the integration of work, family and private life and ultimately provide a better work experience and work environment, particularly for women aged 30 to 39. [9] Although the literature on the share of employment in Australia is vastly under-represented compared to other industrialized countries, Hayman`s research has been more reactive than other existing Australian surveys of the share of employment. The results of this study provide an excellent basis for the future of employment in Australia and the transformation of management practices and work-life balance.
