Living the Dream at Work?

Many companies like to sell themselves to millennial employees by purporting to have a great work-life balance policy – and more often than not, this isn’t true. Many business leaders also like to discuss work-life balance, and while it’s great that there’s more acknowledgement for separating work and home lives, it doesn’t amount to much if their companies don’t make substantive attempts to incorporate corresponding policies that will help their employees. Having in-house “nap rooms” to encourage better sleep habits in employees may sound like a good idea, but why pick the trendy answer to a systematic problem? Instead, it may benefit employees more to have a more comprehensive vacation policy, more flexible work schedules, and a culture that doesn’t demand off-the-clock continuations of work.
