Work-life balance is an essential component of a healthy workplace. Maintaining a work-life balance reduces stress and helps to prevent workplace burnout. People now see work as both a need and a source of personal fulfilment in recent years. The availability of benefits and techniques for balancing work and life is one of the factors that inspires employees to assist in achieving their personal and professional goals. Due to the potential advantages it holds for improving dedication, commitment levels, talent retention, and loyalty in both individuals and businesses, the adoption of work-life balance (WLB) practices and policies has lately gained favor.
Employers can save money while maintaining a happier, more productive workforce by establishing a work climate that values work-life balance. But what does a true balance between work and life look like? That’s where things can become a little difficult, though. Everybody has a slightly different definition of work-life balance. Employers may find it useful to detect the differences in viewpoints among the people since the understanding and approach of work-life balance have been continuously evolving throughout the years. Together with cultural, generational, and economic shifts, attitudes toward work-life balance will continue to evolve. If workers complain about a bad work-life balance, adaptable leaders can update or redesign their company culture to try something fresh.
The best approach to keep talented employees is to make sure they have the time they want away from the office and enjoy their time spent there. This is true even if the goal is to maximize employee productivity. No matter whose generation an employee comes from, providing a flexible work environment is one of the finest ways to meet their expectations for a work-life balance. It has been demonstrated that a flexible work environment helps individuals maintain healthier habits while reducing stress and increasing levels of job satisfaction. To foster a more flexible workplace that appeals to employees of all generations, employers should provide flexible work schedules, remote work options, good manager support and clear job autonomy.
Women make up the majority of any workforce, especially in healthcare. In Malaysia, the roles assigned for men and women is still patriarchal. Women are responsible for both household and professional duties, which poses a problem for their work-life balance. Working women nowadays are under a lot of pressure to care for their family while also attempting to maintain their professions. The demands of their various roles must be balanced. When working women try to mix, coordinate, and balance the various issues and tasks in their various roles at the same time, they are put under a lot of stress. As a result, the family becomes a stakeholder in the company, and this potent social trend indicated the beginning of a change in how people view work and life. If there is an imbalance between their work and home life this will be a major factor in turnover rates.
