Work & Family Life Balance – Who Wouldn’t “Like” this Idea?

Yesterday was just another day.  I logged in to my computer, checked my emails, read my newsletters, worked on a few spreadsheets, started my project calendar for October, participated in a conference call, then called it a day.  Yes, it was just another day.  Except I completed all these tasks in my home office.  I am fortunate to work for a company that has recently introduced telecommuting and on Thursdays each week, my work is completed on my home computer with my two dogs snoring in the background.

Thanks to initiatives and awareness through organizations such as the Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP), many companies are looking at options to create more balance between work and family.  In fact, AWLP was instrumental in designating October as National Work & Family Month by a Resolution of the United States Senate in 2003.

As stated on their website, “AWLP encourages all workplaces to pause once a year during the month of October to communicate and celebrate the progress to creating healthier and more flexible work environments. This year, employees are encouraged to strike a balance by talking to their managers about a flexible work arrangement. Use October as a time to try telework, condense a workweek, join a wellness program or organize a workplace volunteer activity.”

What has your company done, or are they doing, to provide more balance between work and family?  We’d like to hear from you.
