Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine whether the impact of work-life balance on stress levels of X and Y generation employees varies by demographic factors. The hypotheses of the study were tested on a sample of 252 employees in total, representing X and Y generations, working for a large-scale business operating in the food sector in Istanbul. Results of the study showed that there is only a difference between the X generation employees according to the reasons for preferring the job, and that the work-life balance is lower among the participants who chose their jobs for fear of unemployment; and that for the Y generation employees, females have higher stress levels in comparison to males and secondary education graduates have lower stress levels in comparison to other participants. In addition, it was found that participants whose supervisors are women have a higher work-life balance than those whose supervisors are men.
