Abstract : A literature review was conducted assessing the effects of Quality of Life (QOL) and related factors that affect turnover and performance in the private sector. Support was found for the spillover model (attitudes from one sector of life, such as work, carry over into another sphere, such as home). However, determining the causal direction of the work-nonwork relationship is still speculative. Some evidence has been found for the effects of family responsibilities on work (e.g., tardiness). Possible variables that influence turnover include pay/salary, health, and shiftwork. The QOL/performance relationship is suggestive at best given the lack of research.
