Why maximise employee life balance and workload management?

Today’s business world is fast paced and workers can struggle to achieve a good balance between work and non-work commitments (i.e., work-life balance). Employee workloads are increasingly large and stressful and, with technology at our fingertips, finding true down time is difficult.

Research shows that approximately 60% of women and 50% of men, feel time pressured.  Approximately 1 in 4 women and 1 in 5 men working full-time are dissatisfied with their work-life balance1.

Work-life imbalance frequently leads to stress and psychological conditions like anxiety and depression. Workers who experience workplace stress take an extra 3.2 days off per year. Workplace stress costs Australian employers over $10 billion a year2.

Companies that support positive work-life balance and workload management have lower levels of staff burnout, less absenteeism and presenteeism, lower staff turnover, less skill loss and more satisfied, and productive employees and teams. Employees who have good balance between work and non-work commitments enjoy better physical and psychological health.

And, it’s not just working mothers and white-collar workers who face the challenge of balancing commitments. Blue collar workers, casual employees and the under-employed (i.e., workers who would like more hours) also experience health and wellbeing issues from work-life imbalance.

Work-life balance and workload management are serious workplace issues. Organisations that support positive work-life balance and workload management can outperform their competitors.
