Work-life balance: Measures to help reconcile work, private and family life

27-05-2013

Good work-life balance promotes the well-being of workers and can contribute to achieving other EU policy goals. However currently more than one worker in five expresses dissatisfaction with their personal situation. Acheiving work-life balance can be made easier by family-oriented policies and flexibility in the organisation of work. It has been suggested that 2014 be designated the European Year for Reconciling Work and Family Life.
