Abstract

The intention of this paper is to explore, through empirical based research the antecedents of work life imbalance for men and women as they progress through different life stages. The ‘one size fits all’ approach to the design and development of work life balance initiates is not only costly but likely to be ineffective in terms of meeting the real needs of these various categories of employees and so the hope is that the research findings will also have practical implications in assisting organisations to come to terms with this complex yet extremely important issue.
