Organizations that offer a good quality of work life to their employees have a good index in attracting and retaining employees. Therefore, the quality of employees' working life is the key to any organization's success, increasing employee satisfaction and strengthening their learning and flexibility in a changing environment. Therefore, this research aimed to investigate the causal relationship between personality traits and job stress with the quality of work life through the mediation of job attachment.

In order to measure the research variables, Walton's (1973) work-life quality questionnaires, Davis et al.'s job stress (1991), NEO personality traits (Costa & McCree, 1985), and Edwards and Klipatrick's (1984) job attachment were used. Evaluation of the proposed model was done using path analysis. Results: The findings showed that the direct paths of personality traits and job stress and job attachment with quality of work life and the direct paths of personality traits and job stress with job attachment were statistically significant. On the other hand, the results showed that the indirect paths of personality traits and job stress through job attachment with the quality of work life were significant.
