Nurses as the largest group of health care providers will have a good standard of working life so they can provide their patients with quality treatment. Therefore care should be taken to the working life of the nurses. Work life quality (WLQ) is a dynamic object that is affected by multiple facets of work and personal life, and communicates with them. Brooks argued that QWL has two goals: to increase the consistency of the employees work experience while at the same time increasing the organization's overall profitability. From a nursing perspective, Brooks defined the QWL as “the degree to which registered nurses are able to satisfy important personal needs through their experiences in their work organization while achieving the organization’s goals”. Therefore the idea of employee satisfaction is more than just having a job and a wage for people. It's about giving people a place they feel welcomed, valued and appreciated.
