ABSTRACT

“Work life balance “is a person’s control over the conditions in their workplace. The concept of work-family (life) balance has emerged from the acknowledgement that an individual’s work-life and personal/family life may exert conflicting demands on each other. A balance between work and life is supposed to exist when there is a proper functioning at work and at home with a minimum of role conflict. “Well-being refers to how people evaluate their lives. According to Diener (1997), these evaluations may be in the form of cognitions or in the form of affect. The cognitive part is an information based appraisal of one’s life that is when a person gives conscious evaluative judgments about one’s satisfaction with life as a whole. The affective part is a hedonic evaluation guided by emotions and feelings such as frequency with which people experience pleasant/unpleasant moods in reaction to their lives..Thus the purpose of the research was to explore the relation between work life balance and well-being among employees. Samples were selected through random sampling. 40 employees of different sectors working in Qatar participated in the research. Work life balance scale developed by Hayman(2005) and well-being scale developed by Nishi Zawa (1996). For statistical analysis Pearson correlation was used. Result showed that correlation between work life balance and well-being among non-religious employees was found to be negative and there was positive relation between work life balance and well-being among religious employees.
