It’s no secret that the composition and needs of today’s workforce is completely different than that of 50 years ago, or even 20 years ago. With so many more demands on their time, it’s no wonder that the majority of employees struggle to balance their personal and professional responsibilities. Why should employers care? Employees who feel overworked are generally unhealthier, unhappier, less productive and more prone to absenteeism than employees who have achieved a work-life balance, and can negatively impact an organization’s overall performance.
