Work/Life Balance Focus Group
This is a bespoke consultancy project delivered by an Organisational Psychologist.
It is a focus group lead report into the experience of life –work integration for select group of employees, managers or departments in a company.
Companies often can identify that specific groups are under considerable pressure at work, so the aim of the focus group is to elicit their perspectives on WLB in terms of how the company helps WLB and what needs to be changed. It is basically an opportunity for the group to speak candidly about their own experience of WLB in the Company and what they would like to see introduced.
Work Life Integration (often referred to as Work-Life Balance) has emerged in recent years as an important issue for both employees and organisations alike. Prior research has shown that organisations committed to work-life balance practices are more likely to experience success in terms of recruitment, staff morale and employee commitment.
