It’s no joke that work-life balance is vitally important to people. A recent survey showed that balancing work-life balance was their biggest work stressor. Some employees are even asking for work-life improvements instead of a raise.

Plus, happy employees are more productive – a study that Gartner (formerly the CEB) conducted on work-life benefits showed that employees with a good work-life balance are 21% more productive, and 33% more likely to stay in the organization.
