Authors: Jolly Sahni
Abstract: The value that Quality of work life (QWL) brings to the workplace has long been established by several scholars, however, the impact of QWL on engagement and commitment levels of employees remains under investigated. The present empirical study is devoted to explore the quality of work life in telecom industry and examine its association with employee engagement and organization commitment. The data collected from a random sample of 312 employee working in Telecom industry of Saudi Arabia, was analysed through Descriptive statistics and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). Evidence supports the significant relationship of quality of work life and organizational commitment, however, there is a weak link of quality of work life with employee engagement. This is the first study to explore the relationship among three important constructs of workplace; quality of work life, organizational commitment and employee engagement. Therefore, the study significantly contributes to the extant literature on Quality of work life.
