Balancing work and family has become one of the biggest concerns, not only for individual workers but also for corporate America, which is scrambling to devise benefits and perks to recruit and retain workers. This guide shows how to help employees feel fulfilled as they blend work and home responsibilities in a new and resourceful way. The work balance, however, can create instant guilt in many employees. The text shows a guiltfree way of thinking about work-home struggles by using a process it calls blending. By examining the interaction of the six key areas of our lives - work, family, friends, health, spirit, and service - it shows how to diffuse the guilt associated with the impossible goal of work-life balance. Readers will learn how to identify where they are spending the bulk of their time and energy today and, using some simple, low-cost ideas, how they can readjust their lifestyles to incorporate all six areas easily. The solutions are often fairly painless and pretty simple - ideal for busy people and caring organizations that want sensible ways to defuse stress and create calm in a frenetic world.
