While Work-Life Balance (WLB) and job stress are not new problems, they have received more attention over the past few years than ever before. Together, these two problems pose risks to employees' well-being as well as to organisational performance. In this article, an attempt is made to examine the WLB at a private company in Durban, South Africa. More specifically, the study investigated the extent to which employees at the private company (herein referred to as Company X) are able to achieve WLB and tendered recommendations as to how employees could improve their quality of life and well-being. The results of the study could also provide mutual benefit to Company X, especially in terms of creating a conducive work environment and realising the benefits of a satisfied workforce.
