Family and work-life balance.

Ensuring your working life is compatible with a healthy, happy family life can be tricky.

Think about how you or your work place might be able to initiate a program to get families more involved in your work environment and suggest this to management or HR if needed.

Could your workplace host events like family days, or staff and community celebrations? Not only will activities like this help with your own children, but you will encourage an environment that helps other families as well.

Tips:

Get the lowdown on issues at home before you arrive

If you have been away from home for a while through work or travel commitments, chat with your partner a day or two before you head home to find out any issues – rather than having them dumped on you when you walk in the door!

Tips:

Helping dad around the house

Invite and encourage your kids to help you around the house.
