In the recent times, the issue of work - life balance has gained more attention due to the reason that an individual's work life and personal life may present conflicting demands on one another while the demands from both the spheres are equally important. Work - life balance refers to maintaining the balance between performing roles and responsibilities at work and at home. This problem is more for women employees because of the type of roles they play at home and the spill over of personal life over work life and vice - versa. In India, entrepreneurship has traditionally been considered a male prerogative. However, in tandem with a changing socio - cultural environment and an increase in educational opportunities, women have started recognising their inherent talents and business skills. Therefore, the major objective of the present study was to develop and validate an appropriate tool to illustrate the work - life balance (WLB) issues faced by women employees. We also sought to understand the important factors influencing the WLB of these women Employees. This study revealed that role overload, dependent care issues, quality of health, problems in time management and lack of proper social support are the major factors influencing the WLB of women employees in India. Furthermore, even though most of the entrepreneurs examined in this study suffers from WLB issues, there are significant differences in the level of WLB issues faced by the various categories of women employees.
