Abstract

Previous studies rarely examined the relationships among work-life balance, organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and organizational performance. Moreover, most studies neglect the mediating effect of OCB in the relationship between work-life balance and organizational performance. Hence, this paper aims to examine the relationships among work-life balance, OCB and organizational performance and the mediating effect of OCB in the relationship between work-life balance and organizational performance. In order to achieve the study objectives, primary data were collected from 166 employees in selected private banks which are operating in Batticaloa district of Sri Lanka. The simple mediation analysis was used to test the research model. Findings of the study revealed that, there are positive and significant relationships exist among the study variables. Moreover, empirical finding of the study indicated that OCB mediates the relationship between work-life balance and organizational performance. The empirical findings of the study support the theoretical argument of the study. The current study is considered to be vital in understanding the empirical knowledge regarding the relationships among work-life balance, organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and organizational performance.
