Family is as important in our work as in our lives. Unipolar preferences can lead to an unbalanced life. This study examines the effect of work-life balance on employee productivity and well-being, as post-positivist research seeks to explain. This research is divided into two main categories: analytical and descriptive, and this article aims to evaluate the effect of work-life balance on employee productivity. Other sources such as research materials are selected based on the needs of the study. The research shows that effective work-life balance strategies can improve worker health and productivity. Unlike unhappy employees who struggle to balance work, family, and personal life, happy employees are self-motivated.
