A whopping 95 percent of working adults are concerned about spending more time with their families, according to a recent study on workplace trends. Another recent Harris Poll reported that the majority of young workers would gladly trade money for family time. Clearly, balancing work and family has become one of the biggest concerns-not only for individual workers but also for corporate America, which is scrambling to devise benefits and perks to recruit and retain the best workers.
Balancing Acts shares dozens of creative, often no-cost, practical ideas both for individuals and for organizations to help employees feel connected, fulfilled, and productive as they learn to blend work and home responsibilities in a new and resourceful way. The word balance, however, can create instant guilt in many employees. In Balancing Acts, author Barbara Glanz provides a guiltfree way of thinking about work-home struggles by using a process she calls "blending." By examining the interaction of the six key areas of our lives-work, family, friends, health, spirit, and service-she shows how to diffuse the guilt associated with the impossible goal of work-life balance. Readers will learn how to identify where they are spending the bulk of their time and energy today and, using some simple, creative, low-cost ideas and straightforward guidelines, how they can readjust their lifestyles to incorporate all six areas easily. The solutions are often fairly painless and pretty simple-ideal for busy people and caring organizations that want sensible ways to defuse stress and create some calm in a frenetic and fast-paced world. Through her vast experience as a professional speaker to business groups and top-tier corporations, she has tested and fine-tuned her ideas. In an easy-to-read style, laced with gems from John McPherson's Close to Home cartoon strip, Glanz fires off practical advice for taking control of the pressures at home and work.
