The employment of both partners is becoming more and more frequent, as well as difficulties in combining professional and family life. Young people want to create a family, but there are too many fears of not having enough time due to work or even not having enough money. Individuals or young couples start to question themselves who will look after the children? How to adjust the working time with the obligations of a child in the kindergarten or school? Will they manage to get financially through the month? Who will care for sick parents? Most young people have clear wishes and firmly set goals for the future. We all want a strong partnership, good working conditions and permanent employment, and ultimately, our own housing.
The diploma thesis was to study two areas of human life: professional and family life of employees at the Health Center Hrastnik. The goal was to examine the situation in these two areas and how successful employees are combining both. The aim of the diploma thesis was to determine whether there are differences between men and women regarding satisfaction with working time, whether the employees feel that due to working hours their family life suffers, whether the employees are satisfied with the measures in combining family and professional life, and to make suggestions on the basis of the findings to improve the situation in the field of combining family and professional life. The empirical part was carried out using the survey method. The results states that the majority of employees lacked time for their family and that more than half of the employees had difficulties in combining work and family at least once a week. Most employees have children in kindergarten or with their parents. Most of them are also satisfied with the working premises and with the leadership of the organization. For better employee satisfaction the organization would have to obtain a family-friendly company certificate, which based on the survey the organization is not planning yet.
