Abstract


The link between job satisfaction, employee motivation, work-life balance and productivity has widely been discussed by various authors in the past starting from 1930s with little emphasis on organisational citizenship behaviours and work life balance. However, in contemporary employee motivation studies, these uncovered aspects of organisational behaviour is gaining prominent interest as more and more employees show symptoms of work related stress and burnout with far reaching economic and socio-cultural implications.
