223 23.9 ASSIGNMENTS 1. Take the help of a professor teaching work-life balance to get an appointment from an enterprise that practices work-life balance. Collect information about the method of maintaining work-life balance and its impact on the employee mindset. Show your notes to the professor who helped you to get the appointment and your professor teaching HRM and HRD. 2. A person joined a private company about seven years back. He joined as an assistant manager; was promoted twice, and is now designated as a marketing manager. He is a manager with proven track record. He is likely to be promoted within a year as senior manager. Recently, he married a lady who was an English teacher in a higher secondary school. Her mother’s house and the school are at distance of about 120 kilometres from her husband’s company quarters. After marriage, she continued teaching and stayed with her husband in the weekends. To pursue her family life, she tendered her resignation to the school. The problem stemmed from that time. Being a career-oriented husband, he stayed in office for long hours and returned home late in the evening. He was in pursuit of ‘achievement’; while his wife insisted him to come home after normal office hours. His inclination to ‘enjoyment’ was minimal. Consequently, he could not strike a balance between the two roles. 23.10 SUGGESTED READING /REFERENCE BOOKS/SET BOOKS 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
