Abstract: Work-life balance has recently taken the attention of both researchers and executives. This subject interests almost everyone with a professional career. This widespread interest is partly due to its reflection on all the aspects of life. Over the recent years, it has been seen that studies of organizational efficiency and productivity highlight career in the expense of the other components of social life and thus causing a conflict between social and professional life. For those who think that the main objective in life is to work, their career becomes the core of their life. However, people have limited time and therefore, have to perform many other activities other than their jobs. Without a balance between career and other aspects of life in terms of time, perspective and attitudes, many mishaps can be experienced in both. In this study, work-life balance is analysed in an organizational context. This study has the potential to enable the working people to consider their standpoint in terms of work-life balance and the executives to gain new perspectives in order to cope with such a problem. This study might also be an inspiration for academics in terms of certain empirical studies.
