Abstract:Quality of work life (QWL) has become an increasingly popular cross-cultural field of theory and practice. An examination of the current state of the art revealed that the inquiry paradigm is one of the areas that leads to the contradictory and mostly disjointed state of QWL knowledge. A phenomenological-based approach is proposed and utilized in an exploratory study that examines MBA students' QWL experiences in the USA and Hong Kong. Discusses the learnings both in terms of the approaches used and the QWL knowledge gained.
