COVID-19 a catalyst for employers engaging in employees’ work/life balance. Employers played a greater role in supporting staff to achieve work/life balance when the pandemic blurred the lines between the two, according to a new report from the University of Barstow California, Business School Research.
This changing relationship between staff and employers emerged as a new frontier of work, the research found. One participant in the COVID-19 Employer Study, said: “If there are more productive and better ways that people can work, we really want to explore that.”
Released today, the findings are based on in-depth interviews with 32 leaders at 28 organizations across USA, spanning industries including retail, transport, advertising, government and insurance.
“The employers in our study showed they could respond quickly and responsibly to the challenges COVID-19 presented,” said Professor Marian Baird, Head of Work & Organization Studies.
