Abstract The aim of the present research paper is to examine the relationship between some popular motivational theories and the quality of work life in order to understand the role which motivation play to enhance quality of work life. It discusses the famous motivational theories like Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, Herzberg’s two factor theory, Alderfer’s ERG theory, McClelland’s needs theory in a very comprehensive way by a thorough literature review. The paper examines Maslow’ claim that satisfying fundamental needs has a positive influence on QWL, Herzberg’s classification of motivational and hygiene factors contributes to QWL, Alderfer’s ERG theory of employee’s existence, relatedness and growth needs improves QWL, McClelland’s needs theory of meeting employee’s achievement, power and affiliation needs is positively correlated with QWL. Findings show that motivation plays a crucial role in determining job satisfaction, impacting organizational commitment, encouraging a healthy work-life balance and benefiting employee general well-being. The paper concludes by emphasizing that it is significant to integrate motivational theories into organizational practices to optimize QWL.
