Demographic changes like ageing workforce raised questions about work–life balance and productivity among older workers This study proposes a research in constructing Work-Life Balance as a major link between Work-Life Conflict and Job Performance of older workers Specifically it uses Personality as a moderator because the attitude toward work or life is dependent on one’s personality or his or her point of view about job or personal life Employee with positive affectivity may pay no regard to stress created by conflict between work and personal life A survey was conducted within 2 weeks Main respondents are 55-64 age blue-collar workers and their supervisors from two Taiwan industries: China Steel Corporation and China Shipbuilding Corporation The sample size is 153 Results demonstrate that Work-Life Balance has a significant effect on Job Performance of older workers and two types of Work-Life Conflict (time-based and strain-based) have a negative effect on Work-Life Balance of older employees It is interesting that time-based conflict and strain-based conflict have no direct impact on Job Performance However Work-Life Conflict is negatively related to Job Performance through reduced Work-Life Balance Also there was no moderating effect of Personality on the relationship between Work-Life Conflict and Work-Life Balance Despite research limitations this study still provides some significant results and future research suggestions
