Meadow, D. Rahtz and A. Samli eds. Workplace stress and fatigue can contribute to injuries at work and home. Self-employed people control their own work time to some extent. Most existing information on work-life balance is targeted at those in employment relationships. However, the self-employed too may benefit from maintaining healthy work habits and developing strategies to manage work flows which enable them to balance one with other roles in their lives.
Parents, people with disabilities and those nearing retirement may increase their work force participation if more flexible work arrangements are made. Employment has positive individual and social benefits beyond the financial rewards. Employers may also benefit from a wider pool of talent to draw from, particularly to their benefit when skill shortages exist.
In a situation of conflict between work and family, one or other suffers. Overseas studies have found that family life can interfere with paid work.
QWL maintains balance between work and family. At the extreme, if family life suffers, this may have wider social costs. Involvement in community, cultural, sporting or other activities can be a benefit to community and society at large. While such activities are not the responsibility of individual employers, they may choose to support them as community activities can demonstrate good corporate citizenship.
Companies with QWL have employees with high degree of job involvement. People put their best to the job and report good performance. They achieve a sense of competence and match their skills with requirements of the job.
The Influence of Quality of Work Life on Work Performance
They view their jobs as satisfying the needs of achievement and recognition. This reduces absenteeism and turnover, thus, saving organisational costs of recruiting and training replacements. Job involvement leads to job commitment and job satisfaction.
People whose interests are protected by their employers experience high degree of job satisfaction. This improves job output. Many organizations, including Governments, NGOs, investors and the media, consider the quality of employee experience in the work place when evaluating a company. Socially responsible investors, including some institutional investors, pay specific attention to QWL when making investment decisions. Though every organisation attempts to improve the employer-employee relations and through it, the quality of work life of employees, problems may occur in effective implementation of QWL programmes.
Commitment is a mutual phenomenon. When employers want to get the best from employees but do not give them reward and recognition, people will not be committed to work. Jobs which deprive employees of self-development and growth opportunities lead to high dissatisfaction and disloyalty. Non-acceptance by colleagues, non-cooperation, too much politics, and negative behaviour by colleagues, supervisors and other people in the company also hamper commitment.
At the end of the day people want peace of mind, which if not available in the work environment will discourage them to show total support to the company.
