ABSTRACT

The present study aims at examining the role of work life balance on occupational stress among college teachers. A sample of 180 teachers 90 male and 90 female from various colleges of bengaluru were administered with work life balance scale developed by Uday Pareek & Joshi to know the work life balance index, based on the scores of work life balance 180 teachers were divided into two group, group 1 with low work life balance index N=93 and group 2 with high work life balance index N=87. Both the group were again administered with Occupational stress Index inventory to know their level of occupational stress and the role of work life balance on occupational stress. Directional hypothesis was formulated and the obtained results were statistically analyzed using independent samples ‘t’ tests. The obtained ‘t’ scores on occupational stress index indicated that there is a significant difference between both the groups, based on the mean scores we can infer that teachers with high work life balance have demonstrated little higher stress compared to teachers with low work life balance.
