banks in Cape Coast Metropolis with specific focus on the relative degree of
stressfulness and work-life conflict, work-life management policies and strategies
put in place in the banks as well as the extent to which issues related to work-life
management are of concern to males and females working in the banks.

the five working days. They however work on weekends in addition to working
over-time for an average of three hours on every working day. The participants

5:00pm. They actually however leave the workplace at 8:00pm. They therefore
feel much stressed after work. The bankers as such, were unable to effectively
combine their works with personal/family life as they devote more time to their
work than personal life. The study showed that there were policies at the various
banks studied, which were meant to enable workers effectively manage their work
and personal life which include annual leave, casual leave, sick leave and study
leave and off days. Issues related to work-life management were found to be of
more concern to females than to males. More labour should be hired by banks to
