Abstract: For a business to thrive in the current globalization phase, it has to get the formost from its workforce. To do this, staffs got to feel their firms are in obtaining their needs consummated. Its vital to identify and respect the individual requirements of workers. Now it’s not simply a matter of payment and personal promotional prospects. Employees are increasingly basing employment verdict on how well their current potential workplace can support a balance between personal lives and paid occupation. As a result, the employers have changed the operational style and made the work place more friendly and flexible. The paper aims at looking in to the factors that constitute work life balance and also analyze the effect of demographic variables on work life balance. The study was done on the employees of Software and BPO industry. A sample of 315 employees from 10 Software and 10 BPO companies from in and around Madras and Pondicherry was studied. Employee turns out to be a productive provided the environment is conducive. It counts on various factors like supervisor subordinate relations as well as the peer relations. Today IT sectors take up the contract with extremely low quotes which would be enough to just meet the operating expenses. In such a scenario management puts the work pressure on the employee which is beyond the capacity of the employee and time frame.
