Work-Life Balance Evolved
Training Solutions for Today’s Workplace
Let’s face it. Work-life balance isn’t working. Despite widespread wellbeing initiatives and programs, employees are still struggling and organizations are suffering the consequences. The events of the last year and the introduction of hybrid workplace arrangements have complicated matters further.
We’ve all been told at some point in our career to leave work at work and leave our personal lives at home. Yet, it doesn’t take long to realize that advice is outdated when we carry a computer in our pocket and colleagues, family, and friends expect us to be reachable at any moment. It’s simply unrealistic to think that life will never interfere with work, that work will never intrude on life. And since the quest for a perfect work-life balance is failing, we believe that striving for work-life alignment is a commonsense alternative.
