Work-life balance and its implication on the health of working women in India
This research intends to study the Indian working women who juggle their job duties and their household responsibilities, in order to examine which aspects are central in helping them acquire a work-life balance. The aim is to investigate Job Satisfaction, Home Satisfaction and Work-Life Conflict of these women, in relation to their health. A sample of 104 working women across 30 different institutes of Western India was collected. The results found that overall, women are in good health and are satisfied with their home and work life on average, however, they seem to experience some work-life conflict. The study also found that the home-life is more significant in predicting the imbalance between the two roles as well as in predicting their health. It is concluded that a woman requires a supportive family and a healthy environment at home to balance her two roles as well as to remain healthy.
