This week is Working Families National Work-Life Week; you can follow the activity through #timetorebalance
Whilst I am working for work-life balance to be automatic, year-round approach, this awareness week is a great opportunity to open up a conversation about how important this is for the well-being of individuals and for the benefit of families.
Don’t just take my word for it: Research Findings
The statistics Working Families have uncovered about the state of work-life balance in the UK are concerning:
- A third of parents (29%) reported being burned out often or all the time
- Four out of ten parents say that work intrudes to stop them spending time with children often or all the time
- More than one in ten UK employees work over 50 hours per week
- Workload is the main reason that working parents are putting in extra hours at work
- Four out of ten younger fathers would take a pay cut to improve their work life balance
Make your work-life balance a priority; today and every day!
Here are some of my blogs to help give you a few tips to get the work-life balance you want:
