The connection of life and work has long been recognized. People in the organization are generally satisfied with life when one is able to meet his personal and work life needs. Veenhoven (1991) uses the definition of life satisfaction as “the degree to which an individual judges the overall quality of his life-as-a-whole favorably.” In his paper, he takes the pragmatic approach of treating happiness, “wellbeing” and life satisfaction as synonyms capable of measurement by self-assessment, such that a higher score on an instrument measuring life satisfaction similarly suggests a higher level of happiness or wellbeing.
