Work-life balance refers to the way in which people prioritize their time and effort between professional and personal obligations.

There are many factors that may impact your work-life balance. Business demands and deadlines, family obligations and responsibilities, personal needs and desires. Some of these are easier to control, whereas others may be a result of different life circumstances that are not necessarily only up to you.
Finding a healthy work-life balance is important to your overall well-being. It can reduce stress, burnout, or creative blocks. Employees who are satisfied with their work-life balance are likely to be happier at work, resulting in improved performance, increased productivity and commitment.
At a time when work and life are mixing heavily, it’s not only about balancing time, but balancing mental bandwidth. People want to feel present and engaged with their work throughout the workday and feel fully engaged when enjoying their personal time at home.
As a business owner or manager, promoting a healthy work-life balance within your team can be a good way to support your in-office and remote employees. A proper work-life balance is connected to higher performance and job satisfaction, better retention, and employee engagement. To that end, an organization that builds employee well-being programs around enhancing the quality of time spent at work and home can help effectively support work-life balance.
