The rhetoric and reality of work-life balance

"Employers in the public sector ‘talk the talk’ on work-life balance, but have only low levels of commitment to changing standard working patterns in practice – and in some cases deliberately block people from flexible working or grant requests only to selected favourites.

This is the conclusion of a new report from The Work Foundation, commissioned by UNISON, the public service union, which set out to examine the experience of work-life balance in the public sector."
