A true 'work-life balance'....
... is about so much more than people just having interests outside of the workplace and the free-time to enjoy them. A workforce with a healthy and high level of work-life balance is a productive workforce and a productive workforce is clearly desirable for the employer. This is desirable not only because productivity means efficiency or that profitability can be more readily achieved, it also means that the employer is fulfilling its social potential in respect of their workforce and that should be an importance satisfaction and a core motivation for the management team to realise too.
This 'managerial satisfaction and motivation' is a clue to what a fully rounded and healthy work-life balance really can look like. A health work-life balance should be found not only by way of stimulating employees private, home, social and leisure time and activities. Founding worker's satisfaction and happiness within the workplace is fundamental also to enjoying a productive, efficient and profitable workforce.
'managerial satisfaction and motivation'
Given the opportunity; most people thrive in positions where they find their work rewarding and valued. The value of a job in terms of income alone is rarely the 'be-it-all' of the work the best people choose to dedicate their time, heart and energy to. It is the balance of 'terms and conditions' that inspires. It is one challenge to hire the best people and tempt them in with a package including a plethora of great sounding benefits. It is a greater challenge to retain such people and to inspire them to offer consistently their finest possible work, to grant them the conditions where dedication is allowed to flourish.
This is an altruistic goal, this is the great challenge. Striving for perfection in reaching-out for such an ambition must be a never-ending exercise for those organisations and enterprises determined to get-to and stay at the top of their 'game' - but though a continuous program is required that is no reason to fail to face the prospect and seek-out the rewards awaiting those who do.
