TitleWork-Life balance and Job Satisfaction from the perspective of multiple job holding women: Comparative analysis of generational cohorts
AuthorKhushboo Kumar
AbstractBackground and Objective: As we are on the cusp of a trend shift in the nature of the world of work, holding multiple jobs is adding another feather to its hat. While holding multiple jobs provide financial security and more fulfilled life, at the same time juggling two careers can be challenging for women. Considering above fact, this study aims to study the work-life balance and job satisfaction of different generational cohorts holding multiple jobs in the education sector in an Indian context. It further explores the impact of work and family satisfaction in determining the work-life balance satisfaction of women academicians. Material and Methods: Using survey design method, data were randomly collected from 217 academicians using a structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed by using independent t-test and regression analysis techniques. Results: Findings indicate a high level of work life balance among Millennials (m=5.06, p=.028) and a high level of job and social satisfaction among multiple job holders (m=5.32, p=.021; m=.520, p=.014). Job and family satisfaction were observed to be the moderate predictor of work-life balance of women employees holding multiple jobs regardless of their generation (R2=.494) while satisfaction with supervisor, growth opportunity and social life turns to be the strongest predictors of women’s job satisfaction (R2=.987). Conclusion: This paper suggests that in multiple job setting, attracting and retaining women academicians requires providing support in the form of supervision, career growth opportunities and building a social life. Also, generation specific work-life policies may enhance women’s satisfaction with their work and overall life.
