What Do Your People Really Want?

March 22, 2010

Organisations considering to implement work life balance strategies must first start by understanding the needs of their employees.

What works in one organisation may not necessarily work in another.

Consider the following:

  • Who are the people that make up your workforce?
  • What is the demographic profile of your organisation?
  • What do the people want from their employer to assist them to balance their life outside of work?
  • Perhaps engage your employees in a survey, focus groups or interviews.

It is important to know, understand and engage your employees in the development of work life balance initiatives.

Although you may not be able to meet the needs and wants of your entire employee population, this critical process will gain important buy-in and also ensure that you will not be spending precious time, money and resources on initiatives that will not be taken up by your employees.
