Start supporting your employees to balance their work and home commitments.
Help them perform their best
A workplace that supports their employees balancing different commitments helps them perform their best. It also can reduce the risk of fatigue or stress, when done in a well-considered and consultative manner.
"Flexibility in the workplace allows employers and employees to make arrangements about working conditions that suit them. This helps employees maintain a work / life balance and can help your workplace improve productivity and efficiency." FairWork Ombudsman, 2020
A flexible and balanced workplace requires active engagement from all levels of your workplace, and needs to start with the board and senior leadership. It also means employees feel comfortable discussing issues concerning them.
