Work-Life Balance among academic staff of the University of Lagos
Work-life balance is associated with the maintenance of stability in both one’s professional and personal life. It is key to the welfare and, subsequently, job satisfaction and productivity of employees. It is against this understanding that this study surveyed the way academic staff of the University of Lagos perceive and pursue work-life balance at the University. The findings were that the academic staffs understand work-life balance and its importance. However, the University has no policy on the same and the respondents reported a poor work-life balance that is tilted towards work roles. The implications of these findings are discussed after which recommendations for improvement are propounded.
