This study aims to examine the relationship between emotional intelligence and subjective well-being among working women. 104 working women were selected from various levels of employment including higher, middle, and lower using purposive sampling method. Emotional Intelligence and Subjective Well-being scales were used to collect data. The 5 sub-scales of emotional intelligence are self-awareness, managing emotions, motivating oneself, empathy, and social skills. The Subjective Well-being scale is divided into four aspects: satisfaction with life in general and in different areas of life, satisfaction with work and job performance, satisfaction with the economic situation in the last year, and moods/emotions during the previous week. Pearson's Product-Moment correlation and Descriptive analysis were done to find out the relationship between emotional intelligence and subjective well-being. The impact of emotional intelligence and subjective well-being was obtained through a linear regression analysis. Results showed that there is a significant positive correlation (0.5) between emotional intelligence and subjective well-being, signifying the importance of the need to work on developing emotional intelligence in working women.
