Quality of Work Life and Job Involvement: The Role of Empowerment

Abstract

The present study was conducted with the aim of investigating the impact of quality of work life on job involvement within the Kuwaiti industrial environment. It also seeks to explore the impact of empowerment on this relationship. A total of 300 questionnaires were submitted to the Public Authority for Industry in Kuwait, of which 231 were completed. The results indicate that quality of work life has both direct and indirect impacts, mediated by empowerment, on job involvement. The findings suggest that firms should pay close attention to quality of work life to ensure a favourable environment within the organization for retaining employees. The study concludes by explaining the limitations involved and suggests future research directions to enhance the quality of the work life in Kuwaiti organizations.
