The quest for Quality of Life (QL) drives humanity, including organizations, through Quality of Life at Work (QWL), which guarantees benefits for both individuals and organizations. We have in the promotion of QWL a motivational factor, focused on the importance of stress assessment and occupational health, which is perceived through worker satisfaction. Therefore, the objective of this study is to analyze the perception of teacher satisfaction in relation to QWL, according to the Walton Model (1973), at the Federal University of Goiás, Regional Catalão (UFG/RC). The Walton Model (1973) highlights eight criteria that allow us to define the perception about QWL in degrees of satisfaction. It is an applied research, this descriptive-exploratory, with a qualitative-quantitative approach. The first one counted on the participation of eighty teachers, and the data were collected through a questionnaire, which used the Likert scale in five categories. And the second part happened with the participation of six professors in management positions in the Special Academic Units of the University (SAUU), through semi-structured interviews, with complementary questions about the relevant questions found in the analysis of the teachers' perception in relation to the set of indicators Satisfaction with QWL. The results show that among the eight criteria, four; being these working conditions, work organization, social integration and participation; have as their perception the predominance of satisfaction and/or satisfaction among teachers. And the four remaining criteria; which include health, compensation, communication and image of theorganization; evidenced in the results not satisfaction and/or low satisfaction among teachers. Based on the analysis of the discourse, the relevant questions about QWL can be interpreted, justifying both the dissatisfied and the indifferent ones regarding the perception of this quality. Therefore, we can conclude that the perception of QWL among UFG/RC teachers is regular, presenting considerations that allow significant improvements, through either new investments, program implementation, re-evaluation of career plans, among others; that actually generate the required QWL.
