What a difference flexible working makes!

work-life balance

work-life balanceMost working mums and dads know how difficult it can be to juggle work and family.

Finding that correct work-life balance can at times feel like the Holy Grail; the ability to be able to not feel constrained by early starts or late finishes, and having that flexibility to leave your work in the office and your family life on the sofa!

A new study has suggested that the right work-life balance is an issue for many employees, and revealed that the majority of us would actually take less time off work if we had access to more flexible working hours.

More than half would like the chance to work from home, potentially eradicating the need to splash out as much on childcare.

Almost one in two men said they would come into work all of the time if they had a better work-life balance, compared to a third of women.

However, more women than men said they would choose to work from home if they had the option, according Canada Life research into employee absence.
