This article focuses on how people can achieve work and life balance. Most people struggle to balance the demands of work with the desire to have a life outside the office. Research undertaken by Michael White at the Policy Studies Institute and Stephen Hill at the London School of Economics, during 2002, indicates that many employees believe that they face heavier workloads and are spending more hours working than they did in 1994. The task for the employee is to persuade the employer to consider adopting a change in working practices. Research shows that a more enlightened approach to teleworking, flexible hours, time off for study can have a positive impact on individual and corporate performance levels, and can aid recruitment and retention.
