Work life balance is one of the findings of the problem symptoms in the Psychosocial mapping study of Distribution Depot PT. X wich is a stated-owned enterprise (BUMN) in Indonesia. This study aims to analyze psychosocial problems in the company's distribution function after the implementation of organizational transformation in the last 5 years. The type of approach used in this study is a qualitative approach. Data collection methods used in this study were sociograms, metaphorical images, interviews, focus group discussions and observation. This study was carried out in three distribution locations as samples in the study, namely distribution locations in East Java, Bali and East Nusa Tenggara. This study was carried out in 3 (three) stages, namely socialization, data collection and review of results to increase research credibility. While the analysis used is thematic analysis and stream analysis. The results of this study found four major themes of psychosocial problems which are referred to as dimensions, namely organizational governance, work systems, social relations and infrastructure. The four dimensions are further divided into several sub-dimensions. Symptoms of the biggest problem are in the dimension of social relations, namely the existence of internal conflicts within the company and the diminishing work life balance between workers and their families. But all of these are just symptoms of problems which are of course caused by the main problem. Armed with stream analysis, the main problems that underlie all psychosocial problems after the transformation of the company's organization were found. The theoretical implication of this study is that there are new psychosocial dimensions in the world of work that are unique to this research setting.
