Sangeeta Bhatnagar [2] | P K Jain

Abstract: A metamorphic change is occurring all over the world with the advent of Information Technology. IT organizations provide employment opportunities to immense talent pool and hence the role of work-life balance is coming into play. Work and family life have always been interdependent, but the increased employment of mothers, rising family hours of work and the trend toward long work hours for some and inadequate family income for others have rendered this interdependence both more visible and more problematic. More than 60 % of the respondent professionals surveyed said that they were not able to find a balance between their personal and professional lives. This study is aimed at examining the impact of the demographic variables on the work-life balance of software professionals in metro cities and how they have to make tough choices even when their work and personal life is nowhere close to equilibrium The empirical data of this thesis was collected by convenience sampling, using quantitative research methodology. Percentage analysis has been used to test the demographic profile of the respondents. The level of satisfaction with respect to the demographic profile of employees was tested through adequate hypothesis; chi-square test was performed to test its relationship.
