This paper aimed to explore the influence of Job pressure Stress and workplace support on work-life balance and affective organizational commitment among the officers working in field administration. Using a quantitative method, we collected a sample of 157 out of 563 field administration in Bangladesh. The data was analysed using multiple regression. The results showed that Job Pressure Stress is negatively related to work-life balance. Family supportive organizational policies has a more pronounced influence on work-life balance than other types of workplace support. Surprisingly, affective organizational commitment is not influenced by work-life balance. Our findings provide a preliminary understanding of work-life balance among public servants in Bangladesh and offer practical advice to policy makers aimed at improving public servants’ work-life balance.
