The study aimed at examining the effect of work life balance on employee motivation and employee performance among employees at the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development in Central division, Kampala city. Across-sectional and correlational study designs were used to draw a sample of 92 respondents who were selected using simple random sampling. The instruments that were used contained already developed standardized questionnaires such as work life balance measure, Work Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Scale and a firm performance instrument. Data analysis was done on both descriptive and inferential statistics in order to interpret and present findings. The study indicated that work life balance and motivation are significantly related, employee motivation and employee performance are significantly related and work life balance and employee performance are not significantly related. It was thus concluded that work life balance at the ministry doesn’t interfere with performance and that motivated employees perform highly. The research, therefore, finds it relevant for organizations to enhance motivational strategies to help their employees to perform and additional research should be carried out in order to improve the current study and increase information and understanding on the topic.
