Influence of Work-life balance in employee’s performance


Published on

Despite the popularity of work-life conflict as a topic of academic and practitioner debate, and the mounting prevalence of work-life balance practices in organizations around the world, research on the organizational effects of such practices is not well integrated. Competing demands between work and home have assumed increased relevance for employees in recent years, due in large part to demographic and workplace changes such as rising numbers of women in the labour force, an ageing population, longer working hours, and more sophisticated communications technology enabling near constant contact with the workplace. In response to these changes and the conflict they generate among the multiple roles that individuals occupy, organizations are increasingly pressured to implement work practices intended to facilitate employees’ efforts to fulfil both their employment- related and their personal responsibilities. While there is no one accepted definition of what constitutes a work-life balance practice, the term usually refers to one of the following: organizational support for dependent care, flexible work options, and family or personal leave.

What is Work Life Balance? Work Life balance is a phenomenon that occurs to those who are gainfully employed and have to manage their personal life. We are all engaged in a number of roles everyday and we hold a number of roles throughout our life.

So, there is a need of Work life balance. Work life balance is the daily Achievement and Enjoyment in all spheres of life namely work, family, friends, health and spirit.
  5. 5. History of Work Life Balance • The history of the world holiday on the 1st May - May Day, or International Workers Day, held in commemoration of four anarchists executed for struggling for an 8-hour day. Originally a pagan holiday, the roots of the modern May Day bank holiday are in the fight for the eight-hour working day in Chicago in 1886, and the subsequent execution of innocent anarchist workers. • In 1887, four Chicago anarchists were executed; a fifth cheated the hangman by killing himself in prison. Three more were to spend 6 years in prison until pardoned by Governor Altgeld who said the trial that convicted them was characterised by "hysteria, packed juries and a biased judge". The state had, in the words of the prosecution put "Anarchy is on trial“ and hoped their deaths would also be the death of the anarchist idea.

  8. 8. Women and Work Life Balance (contd.) Times are changing from traditional where the husband earned, and the wife stayed at home to the modern when the husband earns and the wife earns too. But the wife still cooks, washes and runs the house. Although women have started spreading her wings in all spheres of life but the traditional concept of the women as the homemaker has not gone away from people’s mind. So, today’s women are striving continuously for “Work Life Balance”
  9. 9. Women and Work Life Balance As already stated before Work life balance is not equal balance between work and personal activities. Life is and should be more flexible than this. Our work life balance will vary from time to time, it may often vary day to day. What is right balance for today may be different tomorrow. The right balances when we are single will be different when we get married or if we get children. So work life balance will be different at different quadrants of life on the basis of priorities. Our aim will be the fullest achievement and enjoyment in all our spheres of life.

  13. 13. Recommendations for employers  Devote more resources to improving “people management” practices within the workplace. Employees who work for a supportive manager  Flexible timings.  Facilities for child care.  Encouraging employees to use the supports that are readily available and ensure that employees who could make use of such assistance do not feel that their career prospects would be jeopardized by doing so.  Leave plans - both paid and unpaid - to suit employee's needs etc.  Examine employee workload concerns.
  14. 14. Recommendations for employees  Take full advantage of what support policies exist within your organization.  The key is not only knowing your priorities, but devoting your full attention to just one priority at a time. "Split your time and your mind so that you're thinking about work when you're at work and you're paying attention to the baby when you're with him / her."  Devote at least 30 minutes to yourself in the form of yoga, listening to your favourite music or in your hobby. This helps to reduce stress.  Try to leave your workplace on time at least twice a week.  Schedule sometime with friend and family at least once in a month.
