Resumo

O objetivo deste estudo foi entender as táticas usadas pelos expatriados para gerenciar a interface trabalho-lar. Esta pesquisa qualitativa foi realizada por meio de entrevistas em profundidade com 64 expatriados brasileiros do sexo masculino, submetidas posteriormente a análise de conteúdo. Os resultados mostraram que os expatriados gerenciam os conflitos que podem aparecer nas relações com os atores sociais dos domínios organizacional (por exemplo, empregadores, clientes e fornecedores) e doméstico (cônjuge, filhos e pais) usando táticas de negociação de fronteiras entre esses domínios. A análise revelou uma lista de táticas que permitem aos expatriados integrar ou segmentar os domínios, bem como permitiu oferecer sugestões de como esses profissionais podem interagir ativamente para construir e manter o equilíbrio trabalho-lar durante esse período de alocação no exterior que lhes é tão exigente. Além disso, a pesquisa sugere que as empresas desenvolvam políticas de trabalho em casa que levem em conta as preferências que um expatriado e sua família têm para integrar ou segmentar os domínios organizacional e doméstico.
