Work-life balance isn’t just a women’s issue
|Publication Date||June 27, 2012|
Focuses on the issue of employee work-life balance. In the contemporary workplace, family issues do not just involve children. The author writes that instead of having parental leave options, organizations should offer family leave policies that allow employees to care for older parents or partners. Flextime, family leave, and telecommuting should be available to all employees regardless of whether they have children or are of a particular sex. Hence, the author suggests that flexible workplace policies, along with broader conceptualizations of “leave,” can improve the work-life balance of workers.
