A Structural Equation Model-I for Work-Life Balance of IT professionals in Chennai



The study developed and tested a model of work life balance of IT professionals employing structural equation modeling (SEM) as the primary statistical technique to analyze the relationship among the constructs used which consisted of work demand, family demand, work interference with personal life (WIPL), personal life interference with work (PLIW), satisfaction with work-life balance and improved effectiveness at work(IEW) on a total of 387 respondents working in IT organizations in Chennai. The model fit the data well and hypotheses are generally supported which leads to the assertion that IT employees experience WIPL more than they do PLIW, since the magnitude of impact of work demand is more on WIPL.  There is a direct positive relationship between satisfaction with work-life balance and improved effectiveness at work indicating that as the satisfaction with WLB increases, so also the effectiveness at work increases.

Keywords: Work Life Balance, WLB Measurement, SEM model, IT Professionals.
