With that, the main objective of this study was to investigate the level and the effect of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) usage on the satisfaction of work-life balance among professional women in the construction industry. Materials and Methods: Questionnaires were administered to 35 professional women in the construction industry. A model linked with ICT usage to measure satisfaction of work-life balance was tested using Smart PLS M2 Version 2.0. Both measurement and structural models were tested and the results turned out to be positive. Results: The structural model in PLS analysis displayed a positive relationship between ICT usage and satisfaction level of work-life balance. Conclusion: The ICT usage increased the satisfaction of work-life balance and allowed women to get in touch with their families, apart from minimizing their burden some workload.
