Employees Want the Next President's Agenda to Make Work Life Flexibility Easier for Companies and Individuals
Date:12/6/2007

"Work life fit has traditionally been more of a personal care giving related issue for women. For most men, it's not as emotional, so they are better able to objectively see the business benefits of work life fit and grasp the strategic value to their company growth," Yost said. "As more men and women see work life fit as a strategic growth imperative, it will become part of the day-to-day business operations."

Progress: More Reporting Work Life Fit, But Gap Remains for Singles and Older Employees

One-fourth of those surveyed reported they already had enough work life fit, up from 15 percent in 2006. More than half (54%) of the respondents felt they had more flexibility now than at this time last year, but 45 percent said they didn't.

Men (56%) more than women (50%), and households with children (58%) compared to those without children (50%), reported more work life fit this past year. But the flexibility gap remains for both single and older employees. Three-plus person households compared to single households were significantly more likely to feel:

-- They had more work life flexibility this year than last

-- They were more comfortable discussing the issue and their needs with

their supervisors

-- Their company as a whole was more supportive of work life fit

The same is true of employees ages 25 to 34 compared to all other age groups.

"There's still a lack of comfort for singles and older age groups to pursue and believe that they too may need and can have work life fit," Yost said. "With looming issues such as the retirement drain and increasing elder care demands, it's critical companies and individuals address both the business and personal need for a work life fit strategy for all employees."
