Promote healthy work-life balance in your business

Introduction

Work-life balance is the balance an individual needs between time allocated for work and time for other aspects of their personal or family life.

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 to help them effectively combine work with other responsibilities such as caring for children or elderly relatives.

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