Özet

Background/Problem Statement: Explaining the nature of the relationship between the domains of leisure and work has become important, as some studies show that today's workforce values leisure over work-or at least wants to balance leisure and work activities. Related literature has mostly focused on the influence of work on leisure. However, some research suggests that there are important leisure influences that operate on work. Very little attention has been paid to the direction of the influence between leisure and work. In addition, there are conflicting findings regarding whether gender has any role in this relationship.
