During a recession, many people are working harder for a smaller piece of the pie. So, how do you balance work with the rest of your life.?
A recent survey found that work-life balance now ranks as one of the most important factors in employee satisfaction—second only to compensation. But a decreasing percentage of employees nation-wide feel they have a healthy balance between career and home-life. Today we'll talk about some of the conflicts that arise when workers bring too much of the office home and too much home to the office. What are employers and employees doing to strike a healthy equilibrium? And what can the government do? We'll also talk with one young professional who insists it’s not a balance he’s looking for, it’s a blend of work with life.
