We cannot ignore the realities of the workplace today, which have produced more stress and made the
lives of individuals more complex, extending beyond the physical boundaries of the organization. There is
a need to adopt a well thought out work life balance (WLB) initiative that should be strategic, credible,
and coherent with the business and HR policy framework at the firm level. It will surely enhance the
corporate image as well as help in institutionalising a performance-based culture in the firm. WLB is a
growing cause of concern for all stakeholders and it should be pursued religiously in order to seek a
mutually beneficial solution for the organizations and the employees in the long run.
