Work-life balance is a crucial issue for every employee in government and private institutions today, especially in Indonesia. This is because there will be a decrease in employee productivity and performance if an organization does not think about the work balance of employees properly and is not managed properly. The fact is, that at present the workforce places more emphasis on work-life balance rather than on income alone where the company is currently filled more by the millennial generation who are happy about the flexibility of work and are very close to technology. The purpose of this study is to look at various theories regarding the effect of the influence of work-life balance on employee performance. The final goal of this paper is to collect various theories to be used in developing work-life balance strategies to improve the welfare of organizations and individual workers. This study uses a qualitative method in a systematic review. The findings show that work-life balance affects the performance of millennial generation employees. An important implication for behavioral science research that arises from this research is that to achieve high company and employee performance, the company must provide a work-life balance policy for its employees so that employees can be motivated and commit to working optimally in the company.
