Regarding the WHO plan on 2020 to eradicate polio globally, Indonesia is one of the countries that supports this, with program called polio eradication. Life science company in Indonesia revealed that the companys profit had decreased significantly because of the program. In order to survive in a competitive environment, the company must be able to follow the pattern of change. Organizational culture naturally depends on the market situation and needs to adapt to it in order to survive or to maintain its competitive position. Due to organizational culture change in life science company brings about problems in balancing in work and family life of the employee. This work life balance concept has not yet received special attention in Indonesia. Research from Dr. Ajay Kumar Singh and Ms. Amanjot shows the relationship between work life balance and subjective well being. Employee with higher subjective well being tend to be more productive in the work place and also predicted organizational performance. This study examines employee-s work life balance and subjective well being of 146 employees at a life science company in Indonesia. We used the work life balance questionnaire from Fisher (2009). Subjective well being measures compiled by Ed Diener and Robert Biswas-Diener (2009). This measuring instrument has two parts, namely the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) to see the degree of overall life satisfaction, and Scale of Positive and Negative Experience (SPANE) to see how often respondents experience positive or negative feelings. Result correlation between work life balance and subjective well being are low (0.240). Demographic characteristics also did not impact work life balance and subjective well being of respondents. Future research should provide a greater understanding regarding how subjective well being is related to others dependent variable, such as person organization fit, because employees will be more interested in organizations that have the same value, belief, and so instead, especially in Indonesia. Research in Indonesia show that person organization fit has strong correlation with subjective well being, same result as research by Park, Monnot, Jacob & Wagner (2011). The higher alignment of values, goals, needs, and personality of the individual with the organization, the higher subjective well being of employees.
