Exploring work life balance amongst female flight attendants at selected airlines in the Western Cape
Work life balance has become an increasing concern for most employees, organisations and industries, not only in South Africa but in many countries around the world. Work life balance has some implications for quality of life. Quality of life is becoming increasingly popular as many individuals are pursuing careers that make work life balance possible. However, due to an increase in the demand of work responsibilities as well as domestic duties, many struggle to find the balance which results in negative consequences for both organisations and individual workers. With a changing world and workforce, women are rapidly entering the workforce and challenging the status quo. Nonetheless, women's employment allows greater ability to negotiate for fairness in the marital relationship and to question the role of a woman in today's society.
