Course Description

According to a Harris Interactive survey, 91% of employed adults believe that workers behave more ethically on the job when they have proper work-life balance. What does that mean for your business? In this lesson, ExecSense examines why a good work-life balance can benefit your company’s bottom line by creating a satisfied, more productive workforce. Take the 50 minutes to learn how you as an HR Executive can create a flexible work culture that can meet the diverse needs of your employees without compromising the quality of their work.

This lesson is led by an expert on the topic, Mark Hollingworth (President – 5i Strategic Affairs), and focuses on how to communicate the importance of work-life balance to departmental directors and educate your executive team on the consequences of employee burnout.

In this 50-minute session, you will learn:

  • How to recognize the signs of employee burnout and deal with them in a healthy manner, and techniques for reducing stress-related illnesses at work
  • Ways to educate your management team members on the importance of maintaining work-life balance in their departments as well as training tips to help them manage and minimize instances of employee burnout
  • How to build and foster a flexible work environment that encourages employees to communicate their needs openly and ensure those needs are being met
  • Why employee satisfaction and work-life balance have a direct impact on productivity, and how promoting a positive work culture can move the bottom line in the right direction
