Abstract

This text provides a thorough and accessible review of key research on work-life balance (WLB) in Irish organisations, and by presenting examples of work-life balance policies and practices in Irish private and public sector organisations, it aims to: establish the business case for work-life balance; provide a practical hands-on, step-by-step guide to enable organisations to adopt and implement appropriate WLB strategies to match the culture and business needs of their organisation; and, provide a comprehensive approach to managing and implementing work-life balance initiatives, drawing on the perspectives, views and issues relevant at multiple levels within the organisation - for example, senior management, middle management, and employees.Given the increasing debate on work-life balance, both nationally and internationally, together with the realisation the employees are a real source of competitive advantage for organisations, this guide is both timely and opportune.
includes bibliography and index.
