MetadataShow full item record
This study, through the adoption of the Conservation of Resources (COR) theoretical framework and the Job and Home Demands Resources (JHDR) model, explored the experiences of non-traditional Western Australian employees and families who work and live fly-in/fly-out (FIFO). Comparing FIFO-related literature with statements gained through participant responses, the study shows that individuals from nontraditional backgrounds experience FIFO challenges at a greater intensity than those from conventional FIFO backgrounds, thus influencing their work and home life.
