Helping your Employees Manage their work/life balance

When your own a business you take on the responsibility of employing people, and keeping your employees happy.

One of the core keys to success is prioritising your employee's happiness. They hold the power to make or break your business, and if they are happy, then you will see a positive impact upon your business.

Helping your employees find the perfect work/life balance will help you with employee retention. One major aspects of owning a business that you must understand is that your employees can still be passionate about their jobs, while having otherresponsibilitie
s.
When they have children, this will come above anything else, for example.

Making their lives easier and helping them out in different situations will be massively appreciated and will help everything to run smoothly.

Here are some of the simple ways that you can help with your employees who have children manage their time…

Open a Line of Communication:

Communication is key in any situation, without communication, operations can become unorganised, disconnected and people can become unhappy relatively quickly. Discussing personal life in work can feel difficult, but it is important to provide your employees with the opportunity to talk about their feelings on work.

Conducting regular reviews with all employees can have a really positive impact on your working environment. This will give you the opportunity to build a relationship with everybody individually and will help you to gain an understanding of what is impacting on their life.

Whether they are struggling to find childcare, having problems in their home life, are trying to conceive or are considering becoming a foster carer - you need to communicate with your staff so that you know what they are going though. It's important to offer a level of support and try to assist in their work life balance.


Provide easier childcare access:

Many small companies are unable to provide childcare facilities, which is completelyunderstandable.
But there are several different ways that you can provide easier access to childcare for your employees.

You could, for example, provide your employees who are parents with vouchers for childcare as part of your salary package - this will not only be appreciated, but it will also be attractive to potential employees.

A lot of people consider the bonus package as well as the salary when accepting a job offer, so it is important to cater to the individual if you want to increase employee acquisition.


Encourage flexible working:

Flexible work hours  can take a number of forms, from reducing the working hours of a parent (if requested), to allowing them to work from home or part time. As well as this, you could also allow them to start and finish outside of the normal working day, so working 10 - 6 one day, and 8-4 the next, for example.


This will ensure that the work is still getting completed, but also showing that you are understanding of your employees situation and are willing to help them.
