Abstract


In this global era competing demands between work and family life have assumed increased relevance for employees in recent years. Out of many others, demographic and workplace changes such as increasing participation of women in the labour force, ageing population, working hours beyond acceptable limits, and advanced communications technology enabling continuous contact with the workplace are some of the factors responsible for it. The repercussions of these changes and the conflict they generate among the multiple roles that individuals play is such that the organizations are increasingly pressured to implement work practices intended to facilitate employees' efforts to fulfill both their employment-related and their personal responsibilities. This research paper is an attempt to compare the WLB of Govt. employees of various sectors and also the correlation between family satisfaction, work satisfaction, psychological distress, family-work, work-family conflict of the Govt. sector employees of various departments in the Nagpur district.

Keywords
