Employees everywhere are constantly trying to find and maintain some sort of balance between their work life and their personal life. The makeup of that balance and the manner in which you go about finding it is different for everyone. And the company you work for can have a huge effect on the success in finding an acceptable balance. Every day our Staffing Consultants discuss with Candidates what type of company/position/culture will best fit not only their career goals, but also their personal goals.
If you are still searching for balance or you aren’t sure how to figure out if you are “unbalanced”, The UndercoverRecruiter’s article entitled Would You Pass The Work Life Balance Test? poses some questions that may help you no matter where you are in the search for work life balance. Does your company have unrealistic expectations in regards to your workload? Does the compensation package you have or are being offered cover the bare minimum or does the company offer additional benefits and employee incentives that will help you be successful in your search for balance? Have you considered looking for a new job?
If you find yourself dreaming of greener pastures, it might be time to find some balance which may make a huge difference in your quality of life.
