The pandemic has forced people to balance work and personal lives as they adapt to stay-at-home measures and remote work arrangements. This study seeks to explore the factors that impact women’s work-life balance during the lockdown imposed by the pandemic. The objective is to identify the professional and personal challenges and factors that facilitate work-life balance for working women in South India. The study involved surveying 100 women employed in the education sector.<br />To enhance work-life balance and overall efficiency and productivity, organizations are encouraged to reconsider their policies, benefits programs, work distribution, and internal job arrangements, making remote working a more employee-friendly experience. In summary, this study sheds light on the critical factors influencing work-life balance for women during the COVID-19 lockdown, offering valuable insights for organizations aiming to adapt and improve their work arrangements to meet the changing needs of their female workforce.</p> Shikha Bhargava, Mamta Manshani, Bhawna Sahjwani Copyright (c) 2024 DME Journal of Management Mon, 25 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 A Study on Role of Women Entrepreneurs in G20 Countries <p>Past to five decades earlier, the very perception of a women entrepreneur managing her own business firm could have appeared ambitious at the highest points. Women entrepreneurship evolved in spite of problems surrounding it such as discrimination, gender inequalities and many more regressive social norms [2]. A lot of women’s have started their own businesses in order to break free from social constraints. Women proved themselves to be strong innovators. Expressly in some of the economically developing nations, the opportunities offered by women entrepreneurs help grow markets and also increase the employment prospects. But despite progress, the topic is of vital significance because of the challenges which stand still and should be treated as global phenomenon. “There are merely about 10 countries across the globe where entrepreneurship is equal in terms of gender equality [2].” The current global trend founds women owned businesses to be more concentrated in small and medium enterprises with a ratio of overall low-profitability or low-growth sectors. Women’s are found to stick or limit themselves to a range of business choices such as fashion retail, beauty cosmetics and food services [1] &amp; [2]. “In continents of Africa and Asia, approximately 75 percent of women are in these consumer-oriented sectors. They are seldom into mining, construction, electronics and big data technologies” Caren Grown, senior director for gender at the World Bank, advocated [1]. The study highlights current participation of women entrepreneurs in the markets of G20 countries.</p> Saurav Kumar Copyright (c) 2024 DME Journal of Management Mon, 25 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The “Personal Leadership: Insights from the Bhagavad-Gita” <p>The Bhagavad-Gita, an ancient Hindu scripture, encapsulates profound wisdom on personal leadership, decision-making, and navigating life’s challenges.

The red queen effect is the need to continually adapt and evolve to maintain relevance in an ever-changing environment. Companies must constantly innovate and find new ways to stay ahead of the competition to ensure their survival and success. Companies typically research or study the competition and then implement strategies to help boost their company sales and profits. This is an effective and practical method of outmaneuvering the competition. While this technique works in theory, companies might not achieve their goals because the competition engages in the same business practice. Despite a company’s efforts to surpass the competition, the company does not move forward or grow. The aims of a research paper are bifold firstly, it attempts to identify the contributions of the RQE theory and secondly, to enable corporates to evade the Red Queen Effect by using generative artificial intelligence to be prepared for Industry 5.0.</p> Saurav Kumar Copyright (c) 2024 DME Journal of Management Mon, 25 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000
