Balancing work and personal life ranked within the top five for pressures felt by leaders and managers but was only ranked 8th by employees as a pressure on their leaders and managers.
Employees clearly believe that leaders and managers do not experience the same pressure balancing work with other aspects of their lives as employees do. Perhaps in their eyes, leaders and managers have greater access to measures to seek and obtain balance.
Leaders and managers can work to achieve better work-life balance by identifying training and development and career development opportunities for staff, establishing mentoring and coaching activities and, in time, creating delegation and succession potential across the organisation.
