RT VOL XXI: Ch 2: Effective Strategies to Enhance Work-Life Balance to Improve Productivity
From the Book: The Refractive Thinker®: Vol. XXI: Work Life Balance: Effective Strategies to Enhance Personal and Professional Success


An employee’s work-life balance has a long–term effect on organizational performance, such as a high rate of employee turnover, which decreases productivity. The productivity rate of organizations with employees with poor work-life balance equals 14% of the productivity levels, which means an 86% loss of the potential productivity rate. In this chapter of the Refractive Thinker®, the author presents an overview of creative strategies to improve productivity. The author shares findings to enhance work-life balance, productivity, and sustainability from 10 qualitative interviews conducted with retail business leaders in the United States who worked for a minimum of 2 years. The data analysis findings indicated that flexible work environments, support, and remote work options enhanced work-life balance and productivity.
