Abstract: Work Life Balance has emerged as an important and significant aspect in present organizational environment. For balancing personal and professional life, organization should implement some strategies that can resolve the issues related to work-stress, workplace conflict, employee commitment, employee retention, job satisfaction, etc. In this study, secondary data has been used to create a hypothesized model depicting the influencing factors behind work-life balance and primary data has been used to support the model. The responses of 484 employees were collected from 5 types of manufacturing companies (Industrial and Commercial Machinery Industry, Electronic & Electrical Equipment Industry, Petroleum Refining & Chemical Industry, Food & Beverage Industry and Textile & Apparel Companies) in India. This study focuses the critical factors (Organizational Facility, Familial Positive Interference, Employee’s Mental Strength) having impact on work life balance and job satisfaction. Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) using SPSS and AMOS Software have been used here. Also it investigates the issues and challenges regarding work life balance in manufacturing companies.
