dc.description.abstract The purpose of this research is to explore and understand the factors that enable some career women successfully balance both career and family roles. This research adopted an exploratory research approach into finding the contributing factors through online surveys, questionnaires, and interviews. The research revealed that career women in Ghana balance their work and family roles under four main themes; external help, proper planning, maintaining good relationships with supervisors and subordinates, as well as the flexible schedules of their jobs. It is recommended that organizations should have a friendly environment and policies that encourage good communication between employees, employers. This healthy relationship is believed to enable career women talk about issues they face at home and work to their employees and colleges who give them assistance when needed. From the research findings, most women admitted the concrete support from their husbands was a major factor in balancing work and family roles. Therefore this research recommends a national awareness campaign to sensitize other husbands to equally contribute with the upkeep of the home.
