The goal of this paper is to outline the existing perspectives of work-life balance, and to examine how they impact individual well-being and organizational productivity. The benefit of approaching work-life balance through the lens of personal and professional satisfaction is discussed. In addition, the author looks at the relationship between job satisfaction and job performance. The literature shows that satisfaction, well-being, and job performance are all related, and this poses greater implications for organizations. The author concludes with arguments in the present literature on the individual and organizational benefits of organizations adopting work-life balance policies.
