Abstract

The raising competitive business among organisations where everyone is engrossed on increasing profit and improvising the satisfaction of customers adds more burden to the work-load of employees. This factor majorly affects the work-life balance of the employees where women employees seem to find it more challenging to maintain a balanced schedule between professional and personal life. This research has focused on exploring the challenges in work-life balance of women employees working with IT and Banking sectors of India by selecting Chennai city as a case study.

Survey based research method was followed for research, the primary data collection was done by passing the questionnaire to women employees working with IT and Banking sectors in Chennai, Tamil Nadu through email and LinkedIn. The data collected comprises information about their demographic details like age, marital status, education and occupational details such as the reason to work, work nature, role in the organisation, distance between home and workplace, their regular and excessive working hours. The data collected is further analysed by using descriptive statistics with the aid of some univariate measures. What was found from this research is that women employee’s economic independence had made them financially secure which is socially valuable too. This study shows that working long hours and travelling long distance jeopardizes the work-life balance of women employees in these two sectors. Overall, the research suggests that organizations have to develop appropriate policies and initiatives to create a more women-friendly workplace on an ongoing basis.
