Within the literature, studies suggest that some of the organizational factors lead to both positive and negative outcomes. Therefore, emotional exhaustion, job embeddedness and perfectionism are considered as significant consequences of work life quality in scope of the study.

Methodology- For the purpose of the research, the data which were collected from 190 employees in banking industry by the survey method were analyzed by using hierarchical regression analysis.

Findings- The results of study revealed that while quality of work life has positive and significant effect on job embeddedness levels of employees also it has a negative and significant effect on emotional exhaustion.

Conclusion- However, when perfectionism has a positive and significant effect on employees’ job embeddedness levels, it has also a negative effect on emotional exhaustion levels of employees. In addition, perfectionism has partially mediating role in the relationship between quality of work life and job embeddedness. Moreover, perfectionism has partially mediating role in the relationship between quality of work life and emotional exhaustion.
