Abstract

Human resource is one of the fundamental factors influencing the development of a nation.
The socio-economic and political position of a nation is very much dependent on how it recruits,
motivates and retains its workforce? In present scenario it is very essential to keep in mind the importance
of Quality of Work Life for employees while drafting the various national schemes which intend to
provide quality of life to people. This is because QWL is an integral part of quality of life. The present
study aims at identifying the various constructs of QWL responsible in affecting the QWL of employees
particularly in the case of women workers in rural area. The constructs of QWL discussed in the present
study include safe work environment, equitable wages, equal employment opportunities and opportunities
for advancement. (Mirvis and Lawler,1984). The whole study has been framed from the perspective of
women workers employed under MGNREGA. Further, the study attempts to find out how far they have
been taken into consideration by the policy drafters of MGNREGA particularly for women employees
and suggests the measures for improving QWL among MGNREGA employees particularly in the case of
women. The study concludes that the important constructs of QWL have been taken into consideration
while drafting MGNREGA but there is still much that must be done to strengthen womens‟ situation in
rural areas .The suggestions for the same have been enumerated and the implications of the study
discussed.
