WORK - LIFE BALANCE VIS–À-VIS HIGH STRESSED JOBS
Work does an important role in everyone's lives. Salaries confirm that the lights remain, there’s eatable on the table and on the rainy-day the vessel is complete. It’s never an easy task to accomplish work-life balance in the present day’s volatile and fast-stridden business world. It is becoming too difficult to distinguish work from our personal lives due to the growth happening with the help of technology and social media. The habit of checking emails everywhere and anywhere has become so common in the present era, attending the official calls during dinner and working with MacBook during non-working hours too. Employers do anticipate a lot more from their employees, leading to a high level of stress to accomplish higher productivity. Thus, this makes the employees' slog for lengthier hours, besides little time devoted to their family with creates stress. The concept of work-life balance explains the perfect condition where an employee could distinguish his/her time and energy amongst the job and any other significant elements of their life. Accomplishing work-life balance is a day-to-day life encounter. It is hard to take out time for one’s family, peers, societal involvements, religiousness, personal development, self-attention, and other personal actions, apart from the workplace challenges. This conceptual paper explains how the various earlier studies on work-life balance and its components helped the author to understand the concept in detail which led to the designing of the research model, the various research elements considered for studies previously, what elements could be considered for the authors' thesis study, facilitated in the framing of the structured questionnaire and what statistical tools could be incorporated in order to get a perfect analysis and interpretation.
