Snippet of the day

During an economic downturn, would it be reasonable to ask for work-life balance?

We would have greater success if we discuss how to achieve greater work-life “effectiveness” rather than “balance”. In an economic downturn, working extra hard to bring in results and to preserve our jobs are practical concerns. Approaching work-life from the perspective of improving productivity makes more sense. Hence, we could ask for work-life practices and policies to be put in place to enhance productivity.  These must be win-win measures, good for the business and for ourselves.  For example, promote and implement flexible ways of working.  Telecommuting (working from home) can cut down travel time and cost, and enable an employee to be more productive.  Reducing work hours, going part-time may be a good solution rather retrenching staff.  Generally, staff are more loyal to a company that has taken care of their work-life needs, and are enlightened to introduce and implement work-life practices.
