  2. AIM The aim of this presentation is to brief you about: “What” is Work-Life Balance? “How” to achieve Work-Life Balance?
  3. Introduction  It is harder than ever to keep up with both your work and personal activities.  Activities and social spaces are becoming ambiguous.
  4. What is Work-Life Balance? Work–life balance is a broad concept including proper prioritizing between:  “work” (career and ambition) AND  “life” (Health, pleasure, family)
  5. Never Ending Working Day  There was a time when people reported to work Monday through Friday and worked 8 hour a day, how ever, present day many jobs require employees to work around 10-12 hours a day, not providing enough time to balance the life aspect of “Work-Life” Balance.  Recent research says that more than 60% respondents are not able to find a balance between their personal and professional life.
  6. Survey Results from USA  2 out of every 5 employees are dissatisfied with the balance between their work and personal lives  The lack of balance is due to: Long work hours Deterioration of boundaries between work and home
  7. Another Survey Results from Australia  Research shows that 85 percent of Australians who took leave over the 2009/10 Christmas/New Year period were accessible to work.  63 percent were available for work calls on their mobile  13 percent checked e-mails  an unfortunate 9% percent used their laptop to work remotely.
  8. Causes for imbalance:  Advanced communication technology: Due to advance communication people get work assignment at home so they spend the family time also on work so work-life imbalance occurs. Also due to advance communication people spend their free time on internet not their families.
  9. Causes for imbalance:  International business: Work-life conflict may come from organizational ideologies. Every organization’s basic purpose is to increase out come from man, machine and money, this puts them in competition with other international organizations.
  10. Causes for imbalance:  Identity through work: As in this era at organizational level employees are identified with their work so, to stabilize the identities people put their full attention on work and work in overtimes so they are unable to give time to family. By this work-life imbalance occurs.
  11. Causes for imbalance:  Flex-time schedules: Flextime (also spelled flexitime [British English], flexi-time) is a variable work schedule, in contrast to traditional work arrangements requiring employees to work a standard 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. day. Allows full-time employees to choose their individual starting and quitting times
  12. Causes for imbalance:  flexi-place work location: Employees work remotely, allowing for flexibility in the location of where work is performed. An employee works from his or her home office one day each week.
  13. Causes for imbalance: Dual-career: One person works 2 part-time jobs, dual career strategy. An employee works part time for an equal number of hours in two different departments.
  14. Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Allow for Time Off from Work  A formal leave policy.  Allow employees to take leave for community service.  Find a New Career  Some careers are simply more stressful and time-consuming than others.  Explore careers that are less stressful and more flexible
  15. Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Reduce commute time: work from home arrangements help individuals give optimum performance while accommodating their personal commitments. After all, ‘time at work’ is more important than ‘time in office’.
  16. Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Break projects into manageable chunks: You might have a fairly big project in your lap that is causing major stress. The best thing is to break it down. Instead of trying to finish it as soon as you can. Aim to spread it out.
  17. Solution to Work-Life imbalance Share the Load: Even though we may sometimes feel we’re the only ones capable of doing something, it's usually not the case. Get your partner or other family members to help you with your responsibilities.
  18. Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Don’t Overbook Don’t plan too many things  Assume that only 50% of things you plan for the day will actually get done

Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Explore Your Options  In many cases you do have options; you just need to take the time to explore them  Don’t feel overwhelmed with your family responsibilities  Simplify  It’s human nature to take on too many tasks and responsibilities, to try to do too much and to own too much.  Find a way to simplify your life
  21. Solution to Work-Life imbalance  Learn to Say NO One of the biggest land mines to effective time management is recognizing you don’t have to agree with everything and with everyone. Saying no to one thing opens the door to saying yes to something else”
