Abstract

Descriptive survey conducted among 67 nursing faculty towards their perceptions and attitude towards quality of Work-Life showed that majority, 58 (86.57%) experienced well balanced work-life, 9 (13.43%) expressed moderately balanced work -life and none of them rated under poor work-life balance. Data regarding job satisfaction showed majority 35 (52.24%) had moderate job satisfaction and 32 (47.76%) had high job satisfaction. The correlation between work life balance and job satisfaction showed positive correlation (r= 0.77) which can be inferred saying that high quality of work life balance will improve job satisfaction and vice versa. Initiatives opined by the respondents related to the working atmosphere of the employees in terms of ranks assigned on priority basis are - flexible hours of working, more time to think and frame work, money of course and then timely promotion were the first four ranks assigned by the respondents when asked about their initiatives for better work life balance.
