Subjective Well-Being: Gender Differences in Indian IT Sector
Shivani Agarwal, Pooja Garg and Renu Rastogi

This paper attempts to investigate gender differences with regard to the Subjective Well-Being (commonly abbreviated as SWB) among male and female employees in the IT industry. The sample from the IT industry comprised 214 people, out of which 125 were males and 89 were females. SWB was measured using three dimensions: life satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect. Following data collection, significant differences regarding SWB were examined using t-test. The findings indicated significant differences in exhibiting most of the facets of SWB between the two groups. These insights can be used for improving the level of SWB among male and female employees in the IT industry.

Measuring Employee Engagement: Perspectives from Literature
Vijay Kumar Shrotryia and Upasana Dhanda

Employee engagement has received great attention from research scholars and practitioners owing to its positive outcomes for the employees and the organizations. Over the years, efforts have been made by both HRD scholars and practitioners to measure and capitalize employee engagement. As a result, measurement tools focusing on different aspects of employee engagement have been developed and used. However, in the absence of a precise definition of employee engagement, the instruments differ in terms of variables being measured. The purpose of this study is to conduct a structured literature review of the major measurement tools of employee engagement. Ten measurement instruments were reviewed and assessed with regard to definitions, scales, properties, reliability and validity. It is believed that the paper shall make a significant contribution to the literature on employee engagement, and it is suggested that measurement instruments having scales linked to the agreed-upon construct of employee engagement will be useful for both academicians and practitioners.

Demographics as Predictors of Work Values in the Information Technology Sector
Anuradha Thakur, Monica Bedi and Meenakshi Malhotra

Work values describe the aspects desirable at work. These encompass the preference of employees at work influenced by individual and social contexts. Although a lot has been talked about work values earlier, this study evaluates its relevance in today’s digital era. Digitalization has brought in dynamism in today’s business world, giving a new meaning to work-related attributes. This has caused new challenges to emerge, demanding colossal changes at workplace. Aspects such as empowerment, job security, congenial working environment, and accomplishment have replaced the traditional beliefs. Taking a sample of 150 employees from leading Information Technology (IT) organizations in India, this study attempts to establish the trends of work values across demographic variables of gender, age, educational qualifications and marital status. Variations of work value dimensions across these variables were found and factors affecting each established.

Predictors and Outcomes of Work-Family Enrichment: An Empirical Study of Married Private School Teachers
Sabina Baniya Chhetri

Work-life balance has started to become an issue even in developing countries due to an increasing number of women joining the workforce either due to financial necessities or desire to pursue a career. While the acceptance of women joining the workforce is visible in Nepal, their traditional household roles have not changed, which has created a challenge for both the genders. Hence, this study attempts to establish predictor variables and outcome variables of positive aspect of Work- Family Balance: Work-Family Enrichment (WFE) and Family-Work Enrichment (FWE) and its mediating effect. The sample included 402 married school teachers working full-time in various private schools in the Kathmandu valley. The results in general found support for many of the hypothesized relationship between predictor variables: Core Self-Evaluation (CSE), Perceived Organizational Support (POS), WFE and FWE. Likewise, WFE, FWE and outcome variables—affective commitment, job satisfaction, and family satisfaction—have a significant relationship. Both WFE and FWE partially mediated all the hypothesized relationship between predictor variables and outcome variables.
