I have struggled to understand work life balance for a long time, too long. I know understand that there is no off and on switch.
I really think that paying people for their time, rather than their services is ridiculous.
Who cares if it takes you two hours or twenty to complete the task? The goal is the completed task, is it not?
I feel this comes down to control and a lack of trust in staff. Trust that people want to work hard, provide them a flexible, empathetic work environment and you will be astounded.
The more we trust each other’s abilities, intellect and skillset, the further we all peogress--not just the one’s on top.
