Many institutions of higher learning in India are swiftly integrating the advanced technology, mostly Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into their teaching learning process. This changing paradigm is putting heavy pressure on teaching professionals and leading imbalance in their family life. As a result, the work life balance (WLB) is indispensable for teaching professionals to cope with the uncertain environment of teaching learning process. To address this issue, this paper reviews work-life balance in general and aims at bringing out the relationship between the demographical variables such as age, gender and the level of stress in balancing work and personal life of teaching professionals. This paper also tries to bring out the satisfaction level of teaching professionals in balancing the work and personal life. The results of the chi-square test illustrate that there is a close relationship between the demographical variables taken for the research and the level of stress in balancing work and personal life. It is divulged from this analysis that majorities (90%) of the respondents were not satisfied with their work life balance. In this fiercely competitive world, to be successful, it is momentous for any institutions to provide work-life balancing programs to their workforce to balance their work and personal life.
