The purpose of this study is to investigate and assess the impact of work-life balance and performance on a person's social and personal life. According to the study, the majority of employees are dissatisfied with their work-life balance because they spend significantly more time at work than their formal employment hours. The desire to achieve a better work-life balance drives the desire for more time. Work-life balance has become a prevalent concern for employees and employers as a result of demographic changes, women's participation in the workforce, the growing number of dual-career families, and changes in work environments. Work-life balance is a state of equilibrium in which both a person's personal and professional lives are fulfilled
