This study examined the relationship of female and male psychologists perceptions of organizational values supportive of workpersonal life balance and their work experiences, work and nonwork satisfactions, and psychological wellbeing. Data were collected from 458 Australian psychologists using anonymous questionnaires. Psychologists reporting organizational values more supportive of workpersonal life balance also reported greater job and career satisfaction, less work stress, less intention to quit, greater family satisfaction, fewer psychosomatic symptoms, and more positive emotional wellbeing. Interestingly, perceptions of organizational values supportive of workpersonal life balance were unrelated to hours and extrahours worked and job involvement.
