Promote good work/life balance in your business

Introduction

Work/life balance is about adjusting working patterns to allow employees to combine work with their other responsibilities such as caring for children or elderly relatives.

Introducing appropriate employment practices to help employees achieve a better work/life balance brings tangible benefits to your business.

In addition, certain employees have the right to request flexible working. Demographic changes, including an ageing population and smaller family structures, will increase the likelihood of your employees requesting flexible working arrangements.

This guide examines how to promote good work/life balance in your workplace and highlights some of the benefits for your business.
