Roffey stresses need for family friendly policies at work

The excessive work ethic of top managers is hampering attempts by employees to create a sensible balance between their working and home lives, according to a Roffey Park Management Institute survey.

The institute questioned a number of managers and found that the majority want to combine a successful career and fulfilling personal life but are under pressure to work long hours. This leaves them with insufficient time or energy to spend time with family and friends or pursue leisure activities.

The survey suggests that to redress the balance organisations need to reduce the stigma attached to family friendly policies. The report is available from Roffey on 01293 854 052.
