The intent of the study is to identify the challenges faced by home-based professionals: work-life balance. The challenges faced by the respondents were measured in the areas of personal productivity, IT (Information Technology) tools/resources, and clients’ systems, policies, and guidelines. Results show that in terms of personal productivity, and IT tools and resources, the respondents encountered low levels of challenge. Moreover, in the area of client’s systems, policies and guidelines, the respondents have a moderate level of challenge. The study shows that home-based professionals have a low to moderate level of challenges in the areas of personal productivity, IT tools and resources, client’s systems, policies, and guidelines when grouped and compared to age, civil status and sex. The highest overall mean is in the personal productivity, considered as high. The home-based professionals encountered low to moderate challenges in the areas of IT tools/resources and client’s systems, policies and guidelines. The statistical result shows that there is no significant difference in the areas of personal productivity, IT tools and resources, and client’s systems, policies, and guidelines of the home-based professionals as they pertain to respondents’ civil status and sex. A good work-life balance has numerous positive effects, including less stress, lower risk of burn out, and greater sense of well-being. This not only benefits employees but employers, too.
