Work/Life Balance

In preparation for this discussion, read the following articles:

Balancing work and personal responsibilities can be a challenge. Employers are increasingly acknowledging these struggles and are instituting policies to help address them. Please address the following:

  • Suggest two policies that you think employers could institute      that would best promote work-life balance among their employees. Be sure      to explain why you think these policies would help.
  • Would all employees benefit from these policies or just      certain types of employees? 
  • Once these policies are instituted in the workplace,      what role does workplace culture play in whether or not employees take      advantage of them?
  • What effect would these policies promoting work-life      balance have on workplace      productivity?        

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
