Abstract

The purpose of the study is to explore the impact of the dependent child’s age on the work-family conflict experienced by the working mothers in the IT industries at Bengaluru. The paper tries to determine the impact of the various factors on the work-family conflict experienced by the working mothers and also tries to analyze whether the impact is significant among working mothers with younger children or working mothers with grown up children. An exploratory study was undertaken among the working mothers employed in Information technology industries at Bengaluru. The questionnaire was distributed to selected IT companies where more than 30% of the workforce is women employees. Out of the 196 respondents having children 176 respondents with children responded. Factors like job involvement, role stress, managerial support, colleague support and family support and its impact on the work-family conflict of the working mothers were assessed. Regression analysis was used to test the proposed hypothesis. The research finding says that the factors influencing the work-family conflict of the working mothers differs depending upon the age of their children. The paper tries to view the problem of work-life balance needs of working women in a strategic HR angle and tries to examine this issue in a more holistic manner.
