Work Family Balance – reality or myth?

scales-business-family

We have all heard the term work family balance before. Most companies and corporations have adopted the terminolgy of a work family balance or a family friendly work environment. Exactly what is that? I spent my last 15 years working for one corporation and I have no clue what work family balance means. Deadlines and projects are always a heavier balance.

Is 2 – 3 weeks of vacation really a balance? What about the other 49 – 50 weeks of the year? In this case, I would say that work family balance is a myth. Family leave Act and other laws have done very little to provide more balance in Americas families. Companies are expecting more from its workers in this economy were staff reductions have taken place and people are afraid of losing their jobs. What about your family? It is important to schedule time each day to spend with your kids.
