Abstract: Background: The importance of work-life balance for job satisfaction and wellbeing among health-care employees is well-recognized. Evidence shows that transformational leadership style is linked to psychological wellbeing. It is possible that transformational leadership is also associated with employees' perceptions of work-life conflict, thereby influencing their job satisfaction and wellbeing.Methods: A longitudinal design was used where staff working within Danish elderly care completed a questionnaire at baseline and 18-month follow-up (N = 188).Results: Regression analyses showed that transformational leadership style was directly associated with perceptions of work-life conflict, job satisfaction and psychological wellbeing. Work-life conflict mediated between transformational leadership and wellbeing, but not job satisfaction.Conclusion: The findings suggest transformational leadership style may improve perceptions of work-life balance and employee wellbeing.
