Interest in studying QWL
on the part of organizations and researchers started in the 1950s (Walton, 1980).
Following research examined the underlying phenomena of stress and QWL
separately and together in various professions, organizations and sectors.

FFPs enrich the QWL
, provide employees greater control over their time and reduce the interference and stress between work and family life (Porter and Ayman, 2010; Houle et al.
passing employee involvement, quality cir- activities are designed to free workers to fulfill their productive function more effectively by opening up new ways for them to apply their energies to their work.

Research on Quality of Work Life (QWL
) started in the early 1970s (Saklani, 2004) and studies on it are essential to help organisations identify gaps that could improve employee's QWL
since high QWL
could attract and retain employees (Sandrick, 2003).
programs are ways in which organizations recognize their responsibility to develop jobs and working conditions that are excellent as well as for the economic health of the organization.
