When a company promotes work-life balance for its employees, it benefits the employees, their families, and that all-important bottom line. A corporation that focuses on work-life balance provides a "benefits package" that does not add to the cost of payroll, so everyone wins. Encouraging self-care, stress reduction, and wellness gives enormous and lasting benefits to the growth and prosperity of every company. How can a corporation be "successful" if its success comes at the expense of its workers? How can a corporation be successful it if does not root itself in the principles of work-life balance? True work-life balance benefits the employees, their families, the corporation, the community, and the world. We must come together in both our homes and our businesses to discover a higher purpose in or lives. We can now live intentional lives and experience true happiness and balance.
