How work life balance eludes working parents in Scotland.
Parents and carers play a crucial role in Scotland’s labour force. In the lead up to National Work Life Week 2016 Family Friendly Working Scotland asked over 600 parents in Scotland to tell us about their work life balance.
Working parents across Scotland are facing a battle to achieve a healthy integration between home and work. Lack of time, lack of money and very often both is a real daily challenge for many parents in Scotland. This negatively impacts our health, wellbeing and family life, plus it is bad for business and our economy as unhappy workers are not productive workers. The good news is that many employers in Scotland are adapting to modern, fair and flexible ways of working. If more employers embrace this change there will be a huge impact on our society and economy.
