Yan Li


Work-life balance is a heavily researched area of interest focusing on how well employee’s work and personal life are balanced. As there is still a lack of literature on work-life balance in China’s context, our research attempts to explore in depth the topic. This paper explores the effects of employee work-life balance on organizational commitment in China’s context. Questionnaire was used to collect data in a state-owned enterprise and the sample size was 363. Quantitative research method was used for data analysis. This study finds that work-life balance is significantly and positively linked to organizational commitment in China’s context. Also, employee work-life balance is correlated with demographic and occupational factors. As the findings indicate that work-life balance can contribute to positive organizational outcomes, we suggest China’s organizations to attach more emphasis on employee work-life balance and take initiatives to help employee balance their work and personal life.
