Work Life Balance in the Lens of Filipino Workers: A Generational Perspective

Mary Grace O. Gumpal | Reinalyn L. Cardenas

Abstract: This exploratory research focuses on the perception of Filipino workers regarding work life balance. Work - life balance is a global phenomenon yet it is still new to many Filipino workers especially those who are working outside the metro. Filipinos are known to be hard workers, persistent, intelligent and loyal. Customarily, they work hard to provide a decent life for their families unmindful of their physical and mental health. Data collected from an in - depth interview to fifteen participants was analyzed using the thematic analysis (TA). It was found that boomers and millennial workers view work life balance similarly while members of generation X differ. For the Xers WLB is not simply appropriating equal time in doing each life roles but putting things in order according to what the situation calls, which is opposite to that of the Boomers and Millennial. It was concluded that their perceptions are antecedent of how they view and define a balanced life, and how they are achieving life satisfaction while doing their multiple roles. A definite and effective work - life balance policy and appropriate local material to analyze WLB were recommended.
