Ensuring that employees can balance their work and other elements of their lives is an effective way to manage stress levels within the organization. But what actually is work–life balance? Many different conceptions exist, and each offers different suggestions for success.

Employees all have different situations, needs, and preferences; understanding these allows managers to provide the appropriate adjustments that employees require.
