This study examined the relationship between organisational characteristics of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and organisational work-life balance (WLB) responsiveness. The level of WLB responsiveness was assessed through a survey from 200 SMEs within Australia. Results demonstrated that SMEs, offer WLB practices in the pattern of a multi-dimensional structure; and organisational characteristics that influenced their responsiveness included industry, geographic region. The study also confirmed that employer attitudes, and high performance work systems positively and significantly predicted WLB responsiveness.
