Staff would welcome greater work-life balance

A
lack of work-life balance is damaging employees’ health, family life and the
quality of their work, claims research.

The
survey by PeoplePC shows a fifth of UK workers admit that their relationships
with partners are being adversely affected by work. A further 38 per cent claim
they avoid taking extra leisure time for fear of damaging their job prospects,
even though nearly a quarter complain that their health is suffering as a
result.

Staff
would welcome a change. Almost half of those surveyed believe that if work-life
balance initiatives were introduced by their employers, they would be less
stressed, more fulfilled and more motivated at work.

Nearly
a third claim they would be less likely to "pull a sicky".

The
telephone survey included 575 employees in either full or part-time work.
