The work environment in recent times is changing so fast with advancement in modern technology which is also increasing work and time pressures. However, the boundaries of the two most important domains of an employee’s life (professional and personal) are getting fuzzy and worrisome as there is a continuous meddling between these domains. Hence, work life balance has been at the front burner of many contemporary organizational researches with many unanswered questions despite previous efforts made in this research direction. The present study examined the effects of perceived organizational support (POS) and work experience (WE) on work life balance (WLB) among civil servants. Standardized questionnaires were used to collect data from three hundred and twelve (312) respondents (168 males, and 144 females, mean age = 42.45yrs, SD = 1.80) utilizing convenient sampling
technique and cross sectional design. Three instruments were used for data collection namely: Perceived Organizational Support Scale, Work Experience Measurement Scale and Work Life Balance Scale. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis with stepwise modeling was employed in analyzing the data. The results of the study revealed that POS significantly and positively correlated and predicted WLB. The result also showed that WE strongly and positively correlated with WLB. However, WE failed to significantly predict WLB. The findings of the study have practical implications for organizations and employees alike.
