Abstract


This paper investigated the relationship between work life balance and performance of women entrepreneurs in Bauchi State. The study adopted a cross-sectional approach; primary data was collected through structured questionnaire. The population of the study was 100 women entrepreneurs drawn from Development Exchange Centre (DEC), Bauchi Zonal Office. The hypotheses were tested using multiple regression. The finding revealed that there is a significant relationship between work life balance and performance of women entrepreneurs in Bauchi State. This implies that women entrepreneurs who experience greater levels of flexible work arrangements tend to have higher performance. This would not only help the women entrepreneurs to reduce
work-related stress but would also be motivated to perform better at work. Policies such as crèches, employee counseling, recreational facilities, or family leave to women entrepreneurs should be promoted.
