Work and Home Balance – Encourage Your Employees to Do It

It is fantastic to run a business where the employees have learned to properly balance work and home. At least once per year there is a big uproar when one “expert” or another  writes a big article on how modern women are struggling to “have it all.” 

Typically the articles have a lot of moaning and complaining. They talk about the need for balance and how impossible it is to balance one’s work life and home life. The articles try to show how impossible it is to have it all. Smart entrepreneurs and supervisors know that employees are better workers when they are not overwhelmed by their responsibilities at work and at home.

When employees do not have a healthy understanding of how to balance their work and home responsibilities, they are less productive at work and more resentful at home. When employees are more resentful at home they become disillusioned and more troublesome at work.  For these reasons, it is in an entrepreneur’s or supervisor’s best interest to encourage employees to balance effectively.

Out of necessity, the work must be divided into more than one day. Entrepreneurs and supervisors at work need to encourage employees to learn to balance their responsibilities at home and work. Employees need to learn this lesson and to learn how to work smarter rather than just harder. Balance is not just a cute word. It is not a slogan. The idea of work and life balance is an important concept.

Employees who feel appreciated, valued, and seen at work tend to stay longer at their jobs. This means that training costs go down. Retention costs go down. Employee loyalty and moral go up. If you want to succeed as an entrepreneur, look for ways to recognize your employees have lives and important things to do outside of work. Recognize this and give space for it. You will be glad you did.

  • Great quote! When you work from home, it's difficult to stick to a "quitting time" and punch out. My husband, who also works from home, reminds me when I don't remember to walk away from the computer.

  • My work life balance stinks. I always like popping here for a dose of common sense inspiration. This was so needed.

  • it's always about balance. This weekend was a mix of low key and hectic but it was one of the best weekends in a long time

  • AGREED! You always have to have a good work/life balance!

  • Perfect advice. Balance is real important.

  • I couldn't agree more! In a very tangible sense, I have been playing with this idea, as far as going through my home and rearranging and re-purposing items that will be better used in other rooms or spaces. It makes everything much more functional!

  • The balance is so important. I really get annoyed sometimes at my work because people don't know how to balance and stay at work until too late.

  • I balance work and home by prioritizing. Work is important, but it will never take the place of my family.
