    Abstract

    Over the last six decades work-life balance has emerged as an important human resource management aspect for employers. Globally, a wide gamut of work-life balance facilities is being provided by a large number of organisations. Recent economic downturn has witnessed a sudden interruption in the spread and growth of work-life balance facilities at organisational level. This paper presents the key recessionary reasons which have negatively influenced employee work-life balance. Further, important recession specific benefits which organisations can avail due to enhanced employee work-life balance have been presented followed by suggestions for adapting work-life balance facilities under current economic downturn as well as in any such situation in the future.
