Life and Work
A study by the Work in America Institute investigated how companies are pursuing the dual agenda strategy of boosting business performance and improving work/life balance. The results showed that an increasing number of companies are finding that they can pursue both goals at the same time, and that when they start analyzing workflow and the design of jobs in terms of how they affect work/life balance, they find that they start making improvements in the way they get work done. They also found that with this approach, it is less likely that work/life initiatives would get scrapped during an economic downturn.
