Examining the level of work engagement among women faculties in higher education institutes


Author(s): Dr. Prerna Chandel

Abstract: Women in the workplace have always carried a larger burden when balancing work and home responsibilities. The purpose to study is to examine the engagement levels of women faculty members in Higher Education Institutions of India. The study adopts a cross-sectional survey design with a sample of 360 women faculty members employed in Higher Education Institutions. Primary data was collected through a structured questionnaire. Majority of the women faculty members were often engaged, which shows they were engaged only once in a week while discharging their duty. While only few employees were found to be engaged in their work. The study cites a major concern for Higher Education Institutions. Present study will help institutional academic bodies to bring reform in their HR Policy and to be focused on their institution specific factors that influence and contribute to restore the disengaged women faculties. Several studies on employee work engagement have been done in the corporate sector and a need was felt to explore education sector specific engagement levels prevailing to women faculties. The outcomes of the study will create a valuable relationship between women faculty and institution, which will encourage faculties to go extra mile for their institution.
