Given the shift from a consumer driven society, people are realising and appreciating the importance on having a work life balance.
The obsession of ‘living to work’ and following acquisition of unnecessary material items made people lose focus on what was important – family, friends, a more rounded and complete life.
Flexible working, where businesses empower their staff to take control of their life is slowly becoming more frequent. The benefits are to be shared by both employer and employee. Company owners and HR departments are starting to realise that the provision of a flexible working policy is both a legal and staff engagement requirement.
Let us hope that this change in mindset gathers pace!
