Work life balance benefits are universally appealing and foster the perception that the organisation is supportive of employees’ personal needs. Employee engagement serves as a route to business success and is achieved when organisations and employees value each other. Work life balance is vital for individuals’ wellbeing, organisations’ performance and a functioning society. Family and work are the most important elements of everyone’s life. Any competing demands of work and family life can cause conflict hence negatively affect the wellbeing of workers. Workplace flexibility helps employees to improve overall flexibility and empowerment. Work life balance practices improve the autonomy of workers in coordinating and integrating the work and non-work areas of their lives. The study was a survey of flower farms in North Rift Kenya. The results of the study showed that there is statistical relationship between work life balance and employee turnover. Therefore, from the results of the study it is concluded that employee personal program conflicted with work schedules hence employee turnover.
