At the Sanjivini Human Resources Institute, we have developed a mathematical model by which one can actually measure one's current state of work life balance.
The idea is that the concept of 'balance' cannot be a 'one size fits all' one, Even for an individual, the balance keeps on changing, as it is influenced by many factors.
What we have experienced while conducting our WLB programmes is that, particularly in today's environment of economic melt down, pink slips and what have you, more and more younger corporates are beginning to feel the heat, of the pulls and counter pulls of family and work demands.
Just as it is not enough to know that you 'have fever', but must be able to actually measure it, understand why it is so, and then do something about it, we need to address WLB quite seriously.
Unfortunately, unlike in the fever analogy, 98.4 F is not normal for everyone as far as WLB is concnerned!!!!
fortunately on the other hand, leading corporates are seized with the problem, and are addressing it.
With best regards,

Have a nice day.

Very good presentations.
Dividing the time to meet personal needs, job requirements,
friends/ relatives, spiritual requirements etc is a good concept.
This is advocated in the same way by Mangement Gurus like Stephen Covey.
