Abstract: Personal life and work are both very important aspects of life and in today's work environment these two domains tend to interfere with each other due to the increasing demand and advancement of technology. These interferences can result in the tension of managing both at a time and can be taken in good sense of having the freedom to do a task at a preferred time. This paper attempts to develop a scale to measure work-life integration. To develop the scale data were collected from the working professionals (n = 351). Exploratory factor analysis results in 17 item scale with four constructs: work-life interference, family-work interference, work and family strain and work and family enrichment. The scale was validated with confirmatory factor analysis. The reliability of the scale was checked with Cronbach alpha and construct validity was verified with convergent and discriminant validity. The developed scale will be useful to measure work-life integration, and studies can be carried out with the association of other organisational and personal variables. The proposed scale can be combined with functions like motivation, job satisfaction, and performance management.
