"Why is work/life balance the big issue for human resources? Because 2/3 families in the UK are dual career, UK employees work the longest hours in Europe second only to America in the developed world and new technology has erased the barriers between work and personal time. The challenge is to design a future, using technology to our advantage allowing our workers the flexibility they require to perform efficiently and deliver the productivity that our businesses need."
