Quality of work life (QWL) is the favorableness or unfavorablenessof he job environment. Its purpose is to develop jobs and working conditions that areexcellent for both the employees and the organization.Work rules can help you create and maintain an orderly atmosphere that is pleasant to work in where employees can work effectively.
