In the workforce management space, the concept of work-life balance is well-known. Most advice focuses on encouraging employees to find their own work-life balance. However, we want to educate manager and employers on how they can encourage work-life balance within their workforces. Our work-life balance infographic highlights important stats and facts around the topic. It also shows employers how they can actively improve the work-life balance of their employees.
The aim of this work-life balance infographic is to highlight the importance of the concept and the issues that prevent it. As manager, the onus falls on you to ensure that a healthy work-life balance is accessible for your workforce. As you can see above, a whopping 73% of employees blame an unhealthy or unsupportive boss for their struggles with work-life balance. Setting boundaries, creating standards of practice and being open with your team all set you on the right path to encouraging work-life balance. However, there is also the idea of self-scheduling, which certainly makes work-life balance more accessible to your employees.
One of the concepts for encouraging work-life balance mentioned in our work-life balance infographic is self-scheduling. Here at Celayix, we understand how difficult it can be to achieve work-life balance as a shift worker. Shifts are inconsistent, hours are irregular, and it can be hard to plan a personal life. However, with self-scheduling (or shift bidding for that matter), employees can choose the shifts they want to work in advance. This allows them to create an ideal work schedule around their personal life. You can read more about our self-scheduling and shift bidding tools here!
