As an employee you can attest that satisfying the demands of the office creates consequences at home, meeting one’s personal and family needs has an impact at work and achieving success across the whole of life simultaneously is not easy.
But spearheading work-life initiatives at your workplace may take reinventing organizational culture.
AWLP supports employees who want to initiate discussion and open dialogue in the workplace about work-life effectiveness programs and policies.
The basic work-life premise is that respecting people for who they are – not just for what they do or produce – pays off for all stakeholders: employers, employees, customers, shareholders, families, and communities.
Research has shown that employees in an effective workplace:
- Are more likely to be engaged in and committed to their jobs
- Exhibit higher levels of job satisfaction
- Want to remain with their employers
- Have better mental health
AWLP is here to support you with free resources and tools to help you initiate discussion with decision-makers at your place of employment.
