Abstract

Teachers are important assets of the country in ensuring competitive education to achieve the country's vision and mission. The quality of work and good life among teachers will directly benefit the school and the teacher themselves. School leaders play a very important role in ensuring that work demands and personal needs can be met by teachers with minimal conflict management between work and personal life. The purpose of this study is to analyse the factors that affect the work-life balance of teachers by highlighting the literature. The selection is carried out by the process of identifying factors such as keyword setting and database selection. Out of the 47 articles listed, there are 38 studies in the study of teachers' work-life balance using a comprehensive quantitative method. This study has identified the factors of organisational support, job satisfaction, family support, workload and flexible work as factors that affect the work life balance of teachers in Malaysia. However, only the factors of job satisfaction, flexible work, organisational support, family support and spiritual intelligence are the main factors affecting the work-life balance of teachers in the Malaysian context. This study suggests that further research should be done related to the analysis of factors measuring the work life balance of school leaders. This is based on the limitations of the study, as there is no study has been done in the work-life balance of school leaders.
