The issue of work-life balance (WLB) refers to the inability to reconcile duties at work with family obligations as both environments put evident pressure on a person. This leads to imbalance which is a source of personal stress and low productivity. Hence, one cannot hide the fact that the effects of this imbalance can be very burdensome in financial and strictly organizational terms and for workers themselves. The aim of this paper is to propose a systemic solution in the organization so that employees can reconcile work and private life favourably.
