Psychological Well-being and Quality of Life among Public and Private Sector Employees
Psychological well-being is a wide ranging, multifarious concept. It includes different aspects of everyday experience. According to many researchers (Andrews and Withey, 1976; Najman and Levine 1981; Campbell and Converse 1971) psychological well-being is considered to be the composite measure of physical, mental and social well-being as perceived by each individual. Quality of life refers to the general well-being of individuals and societies. It includes not only wealth and employment but also the environment, physical and mental health, education, recreation and leisure time and social belonging. The study aimed at measuring psychological wellbeing and quality of life among employees working in public (employees working in Vikas Bhawan, a government organization, Sitapur) and private sector (employees working in private schools). A total of 100 employees, 50 each from public and private sector were randomly selected. Psychological wellbeing and quality of life scale were administered. Results indicated insignificant difference on psychological wellbeing of employees working in public and private sector. Significant difference was found on quality of life of employees working in public and private sector. Significant and positive correlation was found between quality of life and various dimensions of psychological wellbeing. Psychological wellbeing explained 26% of the variance of quality of life.
