Abstract

There is a strong and ever growing interest in the conceptual relationship between work and family domains, with a research history that dates back to the early 1930’s. The world of work has changed remarkably over preceding decades, and the ability to care for oneself and one’s family can be affected by these changes (e.g. due time limitations or absence from home due to business). Work family issues primarily evolve from increased qualitative and quantitative job requirements, due to: globalisation, mobilisation and new technologies, growing service sector) or increased employment rate of women. The aim of this article is to define the nature, causes and consequences of poor work life balance; and outline some strategies used in workplaces to address and promote work life balance.
