It’s a balancing act: Empowering employees to own their work-life balance
In his latest piece in Business Journals, Jerry Hammel offers his perspective on finding work/life balance, and the duty of both employees and leadership to take ownership of their time and achieve a balance that works for their lifestyle.
Work-life balance constantly ebbs and flows — there is no endpoint — but it is a journey with real rewards for employees and companies. To get there, firms must support employees by setting clear expectations and instilling a culture that empowers their workforce to own their time, so each worker can achieve a work-life balance that aligns with and accommodates their lifestyle. The first step involves a hard look at company policies and environment to see if they encourage work-life balance.
