The topic of work-life balance applies to a person’s effort to be effective
in their work life and in their personal life, as well. This topic wasn’t as
important in the past as it is today because, in the past, people often were
able to attend primarily to one major role in their life (for example, working
in “the” company or housekeeping), rather than to several (for example,
to the current employer and one’s career and being a mother and being happy
as an individual). Organizations are recognizing that, to cultivate and support
productive employees, the organization must assist employees to learn how to
achieve and maintain a suitable work-life balance.
