This study examines the relationship between work-life balance and job satisfaction among working adults in Malaysia with gender and race as moderators. 120 respondents completed the questionnaire. Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 22 was used. Reliability, one-way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) were tested in this study. Based on the results, the relationship between work-life balance and job satisfaction is significant. However, contrary to many beliefs, gender and race do not moderate the relationship between work-life balance and job satisfaction. Nevertheless, this study highlights the importance of implementing work-life balance policies and practices in organisations for higher job satisfaction.
Gender, job satisfaction, Malaysia, race, work-life balance.
