Blurb/Shorttext:
This research project examined the perceptions, emotions and feelings encountered by petroleum surveyors in respect to the construct of work-life balance. The aim of the study was to primarily discern whether a work-life balance exists and if not, to explicate the social and psychological implications that emanate from this phenomenon. A phenomenological approach has been adopted for this study and eleven (11) semi structured face to face interviews have been conducted. A purposeful sampling procedure has been applied and participants have been chosen from three different companies. Interview transcripts were analysed using thematic coding to develop the relevant constructs and themes. The findings unequivocally demonstrate that petroleum surveyors encounter a degree of work-life conflict on a daily basis with respect to their personal commitments, hobbies and vacation leave. In addition, relevant concerns emerged related to occupational, health and safety, staffing and psychological well-being of employees. The research suggests that managers need to adopt an approach that provides for more flexible, linear and less bureaucratic structures and processes.
