Abstract: The main purpose of this research paper is to study the two-way relationship between quality of work life (hereafter QWL) and subjective well-being (hereafter SWB) among IT employees. The study deploys path analysis method to generate and test a model of QWL and SWB. The model was analysed and evaluated with the help of structural equation modelling (SEM) software AMOS 20.0 version. The findings indicated that most indices of the model were desirable and the fitness of the model was proved. It was found that reciprocal relation of QWL and SWB exist. The sample size is of 350 employees which was limited to NCR (India) conducted in IT industry and it is recommended that relationship between QWL and SWB in these findings can be extended to other professionals and non-professionals employed in other industries. This study is new as there has been little recent research undertaken examining the IT sector. More generally, there is a scarcity of work on reciprocal relation of QWL and SWB. The research has developed a comprehensive model linking quality of work life and SWB. Copyright © 2019 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
