Work-life balance has been an important practice in recent years to increase employee retention and productivity, since work-life balance can affect employee satisfaction and organizational commitment. The fatigue and stress caused by the intensity of the work and the organizations lack of attention to work-life balance at the grassroots level has led to a high turnover rate of the grassroots employees. This is not only unhelpful to employee self-development, but also increases the cost of hiring of the organization. Therefore, this paper researches the effect of work-life balance on the intention to leave of grassroots employees and concludes that work-life balance has a significant negative effect on the intention to leave of employees, in order to give organizations insight on helping grassroots employees to realize work-life balance.
