Work-Life Balance

Work-Life balance is a buzz word across many organizations. It’s also one of the primary values of the new working generation. Work-life balance sounds great in theory, but technology has somewhat jeopardized any possibility of balance. Many organizations pay for their staff members to have a company cell phone, laptop, or tablet to complete their work. While most employees appreciate the perks, it can also make them feel obligated to work around the clock. This pressure can lead to burnout and turnover if not well-managed. HR professionals need to be vigilant about communicating expectations and providing the balance their employees crave.
