Work-life Balance

Work-life Balance

Key theme

Individuals, at all stages of their lives, work best when they can achieve an appropriate balance between work and other aspects of their lives.

It’s likely that you’re reading this because you want a better balance between the activities of your working and personal life or you know someone else who needs it. Here, whether you are an employee or an employer, you will find pages of information that will make you:

  • Think... about what your life is like right now and how you’d like it to be
  • Help yourself or others... to get better balanced
  • Take action... if you want things to change.

A healthy, productive and enjoyable work-life balance follows from reminding ourselves of what is important in our lives.
