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. Certainly, the one-size-fits-all approaches advocated by many managers are not appropriate for all employees and implementing inappropriate initiatives can actually increase, rather than decrease, stress. Employees all have different situations, needs, and preferences; understanding these allows managers to provide the appropriate adjustments that employees require.

Managers who can enable their employees to feel a sense of balance between work and the other elements of their life will soon notice an increase in employee motivation, satisfaction, and productivity, and decreases in stress levels and staff turnover.
