Workers are generally happier and more loyal employees when they think the company cares about their lives outside of the company. Enterprises TV reviews some work-life balance guidelines.
Part-time employees can find it hard to balance home and work with changing schedules and meager pay. Full-time workers can also find it hard to fit in time to attend a teacher-parent conference with a hefty workload and strict scheduling. But there are ways to make both employer and employee happy.
Flex time works for both parties when a worker can come in earlier to meet the day’s objectives and still be able to take off early to take care of family obligations. A little leeway is needed.
Employers can give staff a decent living wage so they can feel confident in managing the everyday expenses that crop up. With this behind them, employees feel valued and appreciated and are more likely to stay in the job and with the company.
Don’t schedule employee to work the closing shift and the opening shift the next day. This inevitably will lead to frustration, exhaustion, burn out and give a valuable employee the impetus to leave.
Employers and employees can work together to find the best solutions for maintaining a positive and productive work-life balance by listening to each other and respecting what the other has to say. The Enterprises TV show encourages both parties to find the middle ground so everyone wins.
