Two thirds of UK workers unsatisfied with work/life balance according to survey

26 June 2013

Two thirds (66%) of UK employees admit to being dissatisfied with their work/life balance, while almost half (42%) said the stress of work affects their home life, a new survey from totaljobs.com.

Of the 1,072 British workers surveyed, 25% said they do not get enough time with work being too time consuming.

John Salt, Director, totaljobs.com, said of the results: "British workers are not satisfied with their work/life balance and this is something that can affect staff morale.

"It’s counter-intuitive for employers to make staff work longer hours in order to increase productivity; workers will become resentful and worn out which leads to costly mistakes while increasing the likelihood of staff giving in their notice.

"It’s vital that employers ensure staff are able to handle their workload within normal working hours, leaving enough time during the week to switch off and recharge."

The company has recommended several ways to improve this balance for workers which include allowing flexible working, hiring temporary staff and allowing an early finish on Fridays.

More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.

Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.

One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
