Work Life Balance in the Context of the Navy
MetadataShow full item record
This study sought to develop a better understanding regarding the experience of life-work balance by members of the U.S. Navy. This study was prepared in conjunction with a student thesis, which provides a detailed literature review and examination of gender differences in perception of life-work balance (see Emanuelsen and Lee, 2015). A survey was administered to Navy officers conducting graduate studies at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and their spouses. The findings indicate a number of interesting trends regarding the desire for balance in the Navy, varying perceptions of the Navyﾒs child- and elder-care resources aimed at enhancing balance, as well as the significance of designators (i.e. career specialties) and commanding officers (COs) to the experience of balance as well. In the sections that follow we highlight these issues, draw causal conclusions, and present sailorsﾒ recommendations, drawn from responses to openended questions.
