It’s back to school for work-life balance
l When Guru parachutes in to rescue the management team of one FTSE 100 company or another, he is always supremely confident of his trouble-shooting capabilities.
But as many senior business figures find, a superior understanding of strategy and management does not necessarily help you to deal with your own family.
However, Guru has now been informed that boarding schools are catering for parents who work long hours. A survey shows that half of the families using boarding schools live within 30 minutes drive.
Furthermore, many of these schools are providing occasional boarding facilities for “parents who might have to attend a conference for a few days or have regular work commitments in the evening,” claims a spokesperson for the Boarding Schools Association.
Now that is what Guru calls work-life balance.
