Today work-life balance has become an increasingly pervasive concern for employers as well as employees. A good balance in life and work can play a vital role for attaining personal and organizational goals. This study focuses at first on the factors influencing the work life balance of employees in educational organizations. Secondly, it tries to find whether there is a difference between the influence of these factors on males and females. Thirdly, it studies whether occupation (Government and Private) of the employees has any impact on influence of different factors on work life balance. For this study, an extensive literature review is collected from different journal articles, research papers, online articles etc. For the present study, a structured questionnaire was made and it was based on five-point Likert scale. The study found that out of nine factors stress factor was most important. The present study suggests that there are lots of hindrances in work life balance which all are related to the factors analyzed in this present study. For example, tug of war between time and work, stress, traveling problem, people's attitude towards their jobs, excessive responsibilities at home and workplace, lack of coordination at workplace and home, family's expectations etc. are hindrance of work life balance.
