Quality of work life is viewed as an alternative to the control approach of managing people. It refers to the relationship between a worker and his work environment. A happy and a healthy employee will give better turnover, make good decisions and positively contribute to the organizational goal. An assured good quality of work life will not only attract young and new talent but also retain the existing experienced talent. An organization‘s HR department assumes responsibility for the effective running of the Quality of Work Life for their employees. Tamilnadu State Marketing Corporation (TASMAC) has around 30,000 employees and operates about 6800 retail liquor outlets throughout the state. Employees of TASMAC are not considered as government employees and are not entitled to the benefits and legal rights (like statutory pay, paid holidays and an 8 hour workday) of other employees of the state. Since its establishment happened in 1983, there is not much research study had been made? So an attempt has been made to study the Quality of work life of the employees of TASMAC in Dindigul city. Primary data was collected from the 100 TASMAC workers in Dindigul District. The study found that the monetary benefit cannot satisfy the individual and work life of the employees. The job recognition is the highly motivating factors in the promotion of the Quality of work life.
