Abstract :

Work and life are the most important domains in the life of employees. The need for a balance between the two is well emphasized in many scientific endeavours. Psychological and social maladjustments are reported to be the squeal of disturbances in work/life balance, if proper initiatives are not taken more so by the employees and the management. HR professionals have the expertise in understanding the needs and priorities of employees and to plan and initiate programmes and activities so as to idge a healthy balance between work life and all other domains of life of employees. The present study is intended to understand the extent of stress experienced by the HR professionals in discharging their duties and the extent of work/life balance that they maintain. A sample of 176 HR professionals working in different manufacturing units has been chosen. A ten-item questionnaire, developed by Krishnam (2010), has been administered on all chosen HR professionals to know the extent of work/life balance of employees and to assess the degree of risk in inging a harmony between work life and other domains of life of employees. It is observed that very few (14/176 or 7.96%) HR professionals have experienced severe stress warranting professional help. A few (22/176 or 12.5%) have mentioned that they are free from marked stress and 140 (79.54%) have expressed mild to moderate degree of imbalance. From the observations, it is appropriate to mention that stress is an inevitable part of life and measures are to be taken especially by the employees themselves to convert a stressful life in to a productive life.
