A guide to work-life balance for your employees

It’s important to help your staff to achieve a good work life balance: it’s the right thing to do, and it will benefit your business.

Our guide explains the benefits of promoting a good work life balance for your teams, gives advice on where you can make improvements, and includes essential tips from our experts.

When you’re a busy business owner, it can be hard to focus on giving your people a great work life balance. It’s often too tempting to concentrate on other aspects of your business, like cash flow or bringing in new customers.

Building a good work life balance can take your company to the next level. It can increase productivity, reduce competition from larger businesses when recruiting, improve your staff retention, create a more pleasant working environment, improve customer service and build a buzz around your business.

Our guide covers everything your team needs for a great work-life balance, including:

  • What are the benefits to you and your business?
  • Your company culture and values
  • How technology can help
  • Understanding flexible working
  • How to tell if your staff overworked
  • Read real-life experiences and advice from experts and business owners
