One of the greatest challenges to balancing work and home life is job demands. Job demands include time pressures and deadlines, long hours, unclear or conflicting duties, having too much responsibility, or work that is too tiring or boring. When employees are out of balance, they experience more stress and fatigue and tend to be absent from work more often due to these reasons. They have less focus while at work because they are worried about issues at home and they are also more distracted at home because work matters weigh on their minds. The end result is that neither the situation is healthy nor productive; in short, it's a lose/lose situation for employees, their families and their employer. Hence the researcher out of much curiosity conducted a descriptive survey to investigate the balance between work and life among the nursing and allied health personnel. The findings showed that majority, 65 (95.59%) has moderately balanced work-life and 2 (2.94%) had well balanced work-life and only 1 (1.47%) had poor work-life balance and majority are satisfied with their job. The findings also showed that there was correlation between work-life balance and job satisfaction as obtained value was (.237) which is higher than the table value (.232) which indicates that higher the job satisfaction, better the work-life balance. Chi-Square test also revealed that there was no significant association between Work-life balance and the selected variables.
