Women have a higher proportion of responsibilities of parenting duties in most dual parent homes and control the bulk of domestic tasks in single parent homes (Hoobler et al, 2011). Finding the right balance between commitments at home and work is challenging for women who carry larger portions of caregiver and family responsibilities. Therefore, moving ahead in the workplace hierarchy may be additionally difficult for women, as they attempt to undertake the needs of both their family and job (Wirth, 2001). Due to women’s domestic responsibilities at home it is commonly inferred that they will therefore have a smaller amount of time to dedicate to their career. As a result, women will fall flat of becoming the model employee, according to the way the working culture is organized; staying late at work, coming in early and devoting oneself to the company (Hoobler et al, 2011).
The importance of work-life balance highlights the current concern within society and organizations as the multiple roles on assumed by them may affect the health and well-being of these and may ultimately reflect both in their families and in work efficiency. The vital problem of working women starts after the ringing of marriage bells. Problems of interacting work and family life are more severe for women especially with young women because women have traditionally been assumed to be available during the day to care for the children and to do household work. They want to learn the strategies of combining the two areas of life, and moreover aspire to see the effects of job career on their children and marriage
Work motivation is not property of either the individual or the environment, but rather the psychological mechanisms and process that connect them. Ruth Kanfer, Gilad Chen, and Robert Pritchard, (2008) more precisely defined work motivation as the set of processes that determine a person’s intention to allocate personal resources across a range of possible action. This definition emphasizes the distributional aspect of motivation, and accounts for the critical process by which an individual exerts control over his behaviour. As Pritchard and Ashwood (2007) note, motivational control over behaviour is achieved largely through allocation of resources across actions. This is significant because often motivation is not actually measured; instead performance is used as a proxy measure of motivation.
Now that I have a balance, I feel like I spend enough time at home and enough time at work.” In the 21st century, many women are working to help their husband. This due to economy, they have to spend more on the life. Furthermore, they have to spend a lot of money to make their children live in a better life. So, they have to struggle in life. Flexible work schedule are very helping for a working mother who have to help her husband in the life and have to manage her children.
Many of the women who are hired for these jobs come from families that are in need of money, so they are willing to travel long distances (Hochschild, 2002). However, some of the women are also at risk because they can end up in positions of abuse as there are not many laws that protect them in some of the places they work at as a domestic worker (Burn, 2010/2013). The increasing requests for female domestic workers emphasizes on how domestic work is deeply gendered, and as a consequence, some women might be putting themselves in
“It is important to remember the reciprocal nature of the relationship between the employer and the employees, for what may be right for one, may be an obligation for the other” Venter et al., 2011). According to Venter and Levy rights do not exist within a vacuum, and that there are always obligations that come with them. These rights are usually forgotten by the parties involved within the employment
It is often important for businesses to take note of ideas and techniques when planning on effective customer experience. This is because it is the delivery of experiences. However, it is the memories, added value and emotions that matter rather than the provision of goods or customer service. This report will you discover how many businesses fail to provide even frequent excellent goods. In fact, most businesses usually offer clients leaving competitive scenario for those who really value the interest of guests and providing them with great experiences that cause customers to leave with burning desire to return and invite their families, relative and
With brain power being the requisite skill in this knowledge era, rather than endurance or physical strength, the women workers seem to flood into every industry on par with men. But this has indeed become a tough challenge for women as they have to perform a lot of duties in home and office as well. As working women get married, they have additional responsibilities and when they become mothers, they have to manage the primary care of children and extended family and are thus, under greater pressure to continue on a career path. Working mothers of today fulfill family responsibilities and also try to remain fully involved in their careers coping up with the competing demands of their multiple roles. The caring responsibilities that working mothers have lays a heavy stress on them when it is combined with their professional duties.
