Dr. Bidya Dash
Purpose: The main purpose of the study was to explore the existence quality work life and its effect on work performance among employees in the Hotel industry situated in Odisha context.
Design / Methodology: Through the literature review, the hypotheses were developed. Using data gathered from six different Hotel employees, the current study tested hypotheses using correlation and regression analysis.
Findings: The study indicates that the coefficient of training and development shows a strong relationship with employee work performance. The training and development (Beta = .465, p-value =.000) below 0.05 (or 5 Percent). From the Beta value, it is quite clear that only training and development is found to be the best predictor of employee work performance in hotel industry.
Research Limitations: The research is limited to hotels operating in Bhubaneswar.
Originality / Value:
Despite favorable outcomes of quality-work-life and the increased interest in this topic, less attention has been made on what effect quality-work-life has on employees’ performance. Indeed, most of the studies to date on quality-work-life have been conducted in West Zone, not in East Zone, especially in Bhubaneswar. The findings of this study could be useful for Service organizations to understand the relation of quality-work-life and the employees’ in their work life
