As an employer, you might find it hard to judge whether you are supporting your employees' need to balance their commitments at work with those at home.
Signs of poor work/life balance include:
- decrease in productivity
- employees doing a lot of overtime
- employees taking a lot of time off to deal with 'emergencies' involving children or other dependants
- high levels of employee stress
- high rates of absenteeism or staff sickness
- high levels of staff turnover
