Abstract : Quality of Work Life (QWL) is primarily an initiative of management and its consultants, along with academics and government bureaucrats. According to Keith (1989), QWL refers to “the favourableness or un-favourableness of a job environment for people”.QWL provides employers with one method of permanently reducing the workforce, introducing automated technologies while still maintaining control of the workplace. The QWL philosophy proposes a socio-technical view which matches worker and technology. Workers are social, psychological and physiological beings, not just automatons, and the technical aspect of work must be compatible in analyzing their work and environment so that the social and technical aspects can be optimized. This is an exploratory study using confirmatory factor analysis to make out the contribution of various parameters of quality of work life towards the total quality of work life on the perspective of non- managerial employees.
