This study deals with the issue of Work-Family Balance (WFB) and how it varies as per life stage and experience. Age and total experience are important factors that impact WFB significantly. In defense, Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs), the career advancement and promotion are time-based irrespective of outstanding performance put in by the employees. The aim of this paper is how WFB varies as per experience in this organizational setting. The word “work-family balance” is used to include all employed people irrespective of their marital and parental status so that officers can experience a better fit between their professional and personal lives. The study covers various aspects of WFB—work, sleep, family time, management of work and family and commuting. To measure WFB among officers of Bangalore, the researchers developed a 26-item scale to measure various aspects of WFB. The reliability of the scale is discussed. The findings of the study indicate that WFB varies as per age and experience and are important variables influencing WFB significantly.
