The findings indicate strong support for work-life balance amongst employers and, although this has not always been matched in practice, provision has increased in the last three years. The results also support the business case for the provision of work-life balance practices. Despite some concerns about staff shortages, the majority of employers that provided flexible working practices and leave arrangements found them to be cost effective, with a positive impact on labour turnover, motivation and commitment and employee relations.
