Abstract/Summary

The purpose of this study was to discover the similarities and differences between the BPO and medical-care industries when it came to their family life, work performance and work-life experiences for their 50 employees working in the night shift, 25 from the BPO Industry and 25 from the Health Care Industry. Qualitative methods were employed through interviews. Results were analyzed using content analysis for the qualitative method. The main similarity that was obtained from their family life was that they still lived with a member of their immediate family or had a family of their own, while the common difference between them was the lack of compensation in their previous job as well as they wanted to provide for their family. On the other hand, the adjustment period to start work in the night shift was named the common factor when it came to work, while the common difference is the amount of time during a shift.
