Importance of life-work balance
A ‘work life’ balance refers to an employee’s ability to maintain a healthy balance between their work roles, their personal responsibilities, and family life. So it very important to give them some opportunity to the manager/entrepreneur which can help them to stay fit for business beside employees also should balance their life- work.
If an employee remains satisfied with occupation, business and workplace, then it will turn into the blessings for any organization. People usually do not visualize a businessperson successfully managing both his professional and personal life, without having some compromise. Since they are in a position with loads of responsibility, it will be tough to balance Work-Life as an Entrepreneur.
The result of a poor balance between work and personal life not only affects employees, but also affects the companies that they work for. Employee stress can increase to the level of burnout, resulting in lower productivity at work, a higher potential for stress related health problems and absenteeism, with the associated costs related to these being passed on to the company. In addition to this, employees may also experience poor personal and co-worker relationships and reduced job satisfaction. So it is important to maintain professionalism.
Without the heartiest cooperation, it is not possible to bring satisfaction into employee’s life, rather, if they remain disturbed and work with huge load they will not be able to give full effort to his organization and business and company will not be benefited. An employee’s satisfaction in their personal life and their ability to meet personal commitments greatly affects their success as a worker, which greatly benefits any company. Helping employees to achieve a good work life balance increases work satisfaction, increases their loyalty to their employer, and helps employers to achieve career longevity.
As a work life balance is one which will not only see an increase in the productivity of their workforce but also sees increased retention of staff and reduction in costs associated with high turnover. So it is much more important to balance life-work that helps manager/entrepreneur to stay fit for business and avoid health problems.
