QWL can be define as "The quality of relationship between employees and the total working environment.”

QWL is a process by which an organization responds to employee needs for developing mechanisms to allow them to share fully in making the decisions that design their lives at work.

QWL programs can be evaluated on the basis of following points:

a. Fair compensation and job security: The economic interests of people drive them to work at a job and employee satisfaction depends at least partially , on the compensation offered. Pay should be fixed on the basis of the work done, responsibilities undertaken, individual skills , performance and accomplishments. Job security is another factor that is of concern to employees. Permanent employment provides security to the employees and improves their QWL.

b. Health is wealth: Organizations should realize that their true wealth lies in their employees and so providing a healthy work environment for employees should be their primary objective.

c. Provide personal and career growth opportunities: An organization should provide employees with opportunities for personal/professional development and growth and to prepare them to accept responsibilities at higher levels.

d. Participative management style and recognition: Flat organizational structures help organizations facilitate employee participation . A participative management style improves the quality of work life. Workers feel that they have control over their work processes and they also offer innovative ideas to improve them. Recognition also helps to motivate employees to perform better. Recognition can be in the form of rewarding employees for jobs well done.

e. Work-life balance: Organizations should provide relaxation time for the employees and offer tips to balance their personal and professional lives. They should not strain employees personal and social life by forcing on them demanding working hours,overtime work, business travel, untimely transfers etc.

f. Fun at workplace: This is growing trend adopted by today’s organizations to make their offices a fun place to work.

The aim of QWL is to identify and implement alternative programs to improve the quality of professional as well as personal life of an organization’s employees.

The defining of quality of work life involves three major parts: occupational health care, suitable working time and appropriate salary.

The safe work environment provides the basis for the person to enjoy working. The work should not pose a health hazard for the person. The employer and employee, aware of their risks and rights, could achieve a lot in their mutually beneficial dialogue.

The working time has been established by the state according to legislation which is a 40- hour working week in Estonia. The standard limits on overtime, time of vacation and taking of free days before national holidays have been separately stipulated. The differences regarding the working time have been established for the persons under 18 years of age, pregnant women, breast-feeding mothers and the person raising the disabled child.

The appropriate salary is agreed upon by the employee and the employer. The Government of the Republic establishes each year the rate of minimum salary, the employer should not pay less than that to the employee.

Work represents such a role in life which has been designated to it by the person himself.
On the one hand work is an earning of one’s living for the family, on the other hand it could be a self-realisation providing enjoyment and satisfaction.

there are also few definitions for QWL but the main ones are-

1)QWL is “The degree to which members of a work organization are able to satisfy important personnel needs through their experience in the organization”. by J Richard and J Loy

2) Richard E Walton, states a much broader concept of QWL proposing eight conceptual categories viz. adequate and fair compensation, safe and healthy working conditions, opportunity to use and develop human capacities, future opportunity for continued growth and security, social integration in the work place, social relevance of work, balanced role of work in the total life space and Constitutionalism in the Work Organization etc. it is rare to find work-life situations that satisfy all eight criterias. We can view these eight features as goals to aim for.

Cheers

Subramani
