Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to examine the psychometric properties of the need-based measure of quality of work life (QWL) in the Indian context. Design/methodology/approach: The need-based QWL instrument was validated using the 380 samples collected from public and private sector employees working in India. The data were obtained via self-administered structured questionnaires. The data were examined conducting exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses with the help of SPSS AMOS (version 21). Findings: The two-factor model confirmed the superiority over the seven-factor model in the Indian context. The results are strongly supported by the extant literature in organizational behavior domain. Originality/value: Despite being the second highest populated country and one of the largest skill labor facilitator to the work economy, India lags behind in well-being-related studies as compared to its Western and Asian counterparts. This study has validated and simplified the complex need-based QWL measure in the Indian context. This is easily understandable that QWL instrument is believed to encourage the well-being research in India. © 2018, Emerald Publishing Limited.
