Abstract

The organisation I work for was established In 1915. We are a privately-held, family-owned manufacturer of medical devices, products and solutions used by caregivers in doctors' offices, hospitals, and emergency response settings around the world.

Simply stated, we make products that help people improve lives. Our goal is to make it easier and more efficient for caregivers to assess and diagnose their patients, and we do that by applying innovative technologies that help frontline practitioners work more effectively, efficiently, and empathetically with their patients at the point of care. And to stay competitive, the company I work for is continuously changing.

Demands from consumers forcing costs down and pressures from the workforce to diversify policies, our success are fully dependent on customer and employee satisfaction and our ability to implement change. Work life balance initiatives are needed to help adjust our culture to working towards a cohesive future for all concerned.

Every employee has statutory entitlements that benefit them while they work, but Work Life Balance (WLB) arrangements are more than your Rights as an employee - they are aimed at finding the right balance between your work and personal life to keep you satisfied and content with both.
