In analyzing the needs of the workforce, work-life balance is high on the list of issues facing both employers and employees. Balance between work and home lives is sought but rarely happens for long because of work-family conflict. This conflict is also linked with some other bad consequences such as stress; absenteeism; burnout; and dissatisfaction with job, family, and life—all of which can lead to excessive job turnover and the breakup of families. Would you consider flexible scheduling which allowed you to have work-life balance a benefit? Why, or why not? What step would you like to see your current (or previous) employer take to help enhance your own work-life balance? Explain the benefit to both you and the employer. Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
