ABSTRACT: This study was designed to examine the relationship between work-life-balance and organizational performance in the Nigeria Police Force, Ikot Akpan Abia, Akwa Ibom State. Two hypotheses were formulated in line with the research objectives. The descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study and a sample size of three hundred and fifty-three (353) respondents was drawn from a population of three thousand and eight (3008) using Taro Yamane’s formula for sample size determination. The major instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire administered to the respondents and the data collected were analyzed using simple percentage and Ordinal Logistic Regression Analysis. The result of the findings revealed that, there is a significant positive relationship between variables of flexible work arrangement (𝛽2) 1.681, welfare policies (𝛽3) = 1.771, and organizational performance 0.620 in the Nigeria Police Force, Ikot Akpan Abia. Based on the findings of the analysis, all the proxies of Work-life Balance had significant positive relationship with Organizational performance. Consequently, it is recommended that Government should provide flexible work arrangement by introducing remote work options for certain roles within the police force, where officers can perform their duties from a remote location using technology. Through welfare policies, government should ensure that police officers receive competitive salaries and benefits that reflect the demands and risks associated with their roles. Government should implement comprehensive health and wellness initiatives that prioritize the physical and mental well-being of police officers as this will improve organizational performance.

Keywords: Work-life-balance, Flexible work arrangement, Work policies, Organizational Performance, The Nigeria Police Force.
