Quality of Work Life as a contemporary perspective on HRM is related to meaningful, satisfying, and effective work environment that meets with the organizational and personal needs. Moreover, having quality of work life will lead to better well being of the workers and society. This 3 years long study was conducted at a steel company in East Java, Indonesia. The first year aimed to get base line data problems that arise in the organization using the concept of Quality of Work Life of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EWON, 2002), which has 5 dimension, i.e health and wellbeing, work and non-work life balance, job security, job satisfaction, and competency development. Focus group discussion and SWOT analysis was conducted based on these data to get an overview of the problems. Several programs and systems were set up as an intervention of the existing problems in order to improve the Quality of Work Life, such as organizational development and change management, training of professionalism, stress management, leadership training, while the system set up were Employee Assistance Program, work load analysis, remuneration system, talent management, and career path. With this action research design, these programs were expected to give benefit both to the management and the workers. It is expected that all of the efforts will have an impact on improving the quality of industrial relations, increasing employee productivity and performance, as well as improving the quality of life for all members of the organization
