PART 2. NEEDS TO BE 1. PARAGRAPH LONG
In analyzing the needs of the workforce, work-life balance is high on the list of issues facing both employers and employees. Balance between work and home lives is sought but rarely happens for long because of work-family conflict. This conflict is also linked with some other bad consequences such as stress; absenteeism; burnout; and dissatisfaction with job, family, and life—all of which can lead to excessive job turnover and the breakup of families. Explain one step that you believe employers could take to assist employees in having a healthy work-life balance.
