Work Life Balance is a challenging concern among many employees. The main purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of IT executives of organizational work life balance factors and to observe the relationship between those identified organizational work life balance factors and employee’s performance. The conceptual framework was developed based on the Social Exchange Theory presented by Thibaut and Kelly (1959). To achieve the main purpose, three hypotheses were developed and tested. Hypothesis testing was chosen as the type of study and it was conducted in non-contrived setting. The study was cross-sectional in time, and primary data were collected by using convenient and random sampling. The sample size of this study was 223 executives who are working in leading Information Technology organizations in Sri Lanka. The unit of analysis was at individual level. Preliminary analysis was performed to test normality, validity and reliability. Findings of the analysis disclosed that all considered organizational work life balance factors significantly and positively related to the employee performance. Among all the relationships, work life balance policies had a weak relationship with employee performance. As per the results obtained via the analysis, this study provides valuable insights to managers, policy makers and others regarding the importance of organizational work life balance factors. This study mainly focused on organizational work life balance factors than other factors such as individual and environmental factors. This was the major limitation of the study and it can be suggested for future studies to conduct research covering those factors.
