Aketch, Josiah Roman and Odera, Odhiambo and Chepkuto, Paul and Okaka, Ochieng (2012) Effects of quality of work life on job performance: theoretical perspectives and literature review. Current Research Journal of Social Sciences , 4 (5). pp. 383-388. ISSN 2041-3238


Abstract

The concept of quality of work life exhibits positive emotional reactions and attitudes an individual has
towards their job. It has been conceptualized as a general attitude toward the job. Job performance is often viewed as
the degree to which employees execute their job tasks, responsibilities and assignments adequately. Motivation is
the willingness to work at a certain level of effort and drives employees to action. Motivation emerges out of needs,
values, goals, intentions and expectations. The study utilizes desk research to review literature on quality of work
life that informs organization performance and motivation. The importance of considering these factors is
demonstrated in the strong relationship between employee’s well-being at work and performance of such
organizations.
