Work-life BALANCE

Work-life balance is a concept that refers to an employee’s efforts of splitting their time and energy between work and the other vital aspects of their lives.

It’s a daily effort to make time for family, friends, community participation, religiousness, personal growth, self-care, and other personal activities, in addition to the demands of the workplace.

Finding the balance between work and your personal life reduces the stress employees experience.
