A Laudable Goal

My company just announced a new Chairman for the Board of Trustees. The new Chairman then outlined his three-point plan for the Board, and Goal #1 was:

"To join with the CEO in prioritizing and communicating decisions and outcomes related to improving front-line job-doability and work-life balance."

Wow - work-life balance makes it into his top priorities! Do I work for a great company or what?! Truthfully, this makes a lot of sense from a business perspective. Allowing good and talented employees to manage their time empowers them not only to have balanced lives but to give back to their companies in spades. Happy employees also reduce turnover, which is extremely expensive for most businesses.

I'm very glad to be a part of a company that lists balanced lives for employees among its top goals. With my reduced-hours position, I've enjoyed such for about 6 years now - and this makes me feel valued for more than just the widgets I produce.
