Do your employees have difficulty finding a good work-life balance? They're not alone. Research shows that no less than 40% of the Flemish people have difficulty finding the right work-life balance. The expectations of the employer are getting higher, which in combination with the busy private life ensures that there is not much left of a classic 40-hour week. So what is the solution?
What is clear in 2020 is that work and private life can no longer be separated. We lose a lot of time in traffic jams every day, which means we lose extra time to invest in our private lives. A workplace close by would be a nice solution. A workplace at home would be even better. With a flexible work model, employees can combine their private and professional lives. The possibility to run a wash in between or to empty the dishwasher ensures that employees are more relaxed with their work. The fusion of professional and personal lives seems to go against the idea of work-life balance. But in practice it gives us the freedom to decide for ourselves how, where and when we want to work. To create a work model like this, you need a few things: trust in your employee, you need to offer the right technology and your employees need to stay motivated.
To be able to work when and where you want, you need the right technology. You want to guarantee the same service to your customers, so your employees need the same efficient working environment at home as in the office. Thanks to ever lighter and faster laptops, powerful smartphones and hybrid devices, we can stay connected in the same quality way and finish our work undisturbed.
