UNT professor offers ‘best practices’ for work-life balance during pandemic
DENTON (UNT), Texas — Recent research found that COVID-19 caused many full-time employed adults to struggle with work-life balance and work stress, according to University of North Texas Assistant Professor Hoda Vaziri.

Vaziri, who teaches management in the G. Brint Ryan College of Business, evaluated data from full-time employed adults to uncover the impact COVID-19 had on how employees manage their work and family and explore organizational practices that can enhance employee well-being and functioning during such times.

“We found that those who experienced technostress (feeling overwhelmed by new technology), found it particularly difficult to manage their work and family during the pandemic,” Vaziri said. “On the other hand, those who had a compassionate supervisor during the initial stages of the pandemic were better able to manage their work and family roles.”
