Abstract


India is a country with diverse traditions and customs. Since ages, the role of women was confined to household chores and limited to domestic issues.  The women’s education and participation of women as workers was negligible. Indian women is distinct from their western counter parts in that they do not shed their conventional roles as mothers and house wives inspite of their professional responsibilities. The concern over work-life balance is gradually becoming a common talk especially for women employees. Work life balance is a state of equilibrium in which the demand of both professional and personal life is equal. Each role having different set of demands and when such role demands overlap, multiple problems are faced. The jobs of banking sector are turning more stressful on account of intense competition, unleashed by globalization. The research is conducted among working women in public sector banks with special reference to State Bank Of India, Bank Of Baroda and Bank Of India in Lucknow region.  This research study aims to identify the factors preventing women employees from aspiring for higher post and to figure out the Work Life Balance initiatives and policies undertaken by public sector banks.
