While the professional category of managers presents special characteristics, one of them being important temporal obligations, we may ask whether men and women managers articulate work and life and establish priorities in different ways. Wanting to look into this question, we focused on managers or executives and did so in a predominantly male environment, that of a transport company in Quebec. Our research question can be formulated as follows: "How do men and women managers with different family situations reconcile their private and professional lives?” In order to answer this question and attain our various research objectives, we studied a male dominated sector. We mobilized the qualitative technique of semi-structured interviews and met with 17 managers, including 8 men and 9 women in the company. While this qualitative research is mainly exploratory, our results show that men and women managers prioritize in different ways. However, we observed an increased willingness of men to have more time for family. In contrast, gender has no impact on the use of organizational measures to reconcile professional and private life. Thus, gender is not, in itself, a dominant variable influencing the practices of reconciling private and professional lives of managers, as other factors such as socio-professional category, the sector, the nature of the position, family characteristics, etc. also play a role and from this point of view, women and men experience similar situations. Our research highlights interesting temporal strategies of managers, one which is based on a hierarchy of time availability and another on the preservation of private/family times. [less ▲]
