"Employers that offer effective work-life balance programs are better able to recruit more talented employees, maintain a happier, healthier and less stressed workforce, and retain experienced employees, which produces a more productive and stable workforce with less voluntary turnover."
Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon
"Working families are the backbone of the American economy. I'm proud that the Senate was able to come together to highlight the importance of work-life balance for our labor force by declaring October 2012 to be National Work & Family Month."
Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho
"Employers utilizing work-life effectiveness programs report an increase in productivity, attraction, retention and higher levels of on-the-job employee satisfaction. This designation will encourage employers, employees and communities across our nation to discuss and work together on mutually beneficial work-life programs and policies."
