2011: Despite Recent Recession, Financial & Job Insecurities Not the Biggest Obstacles to Work Life Flexibility
The 2011 Work+Life Fit Reality Check is a telephone survey of a national probability sample of 637 full-time employed adults was sponsored by Work+Life Fit, Inc., and conducted by Opinion Research Corporation on March 3-7, 2011, and has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent. Summary of findings:
- Work+life flexibility is no longer a bright, shiny, novelty item. It’s here to stay.
- The work+life flexibility that existed before the downturn survived intact and is growing.
- Since 2006, people are significantly less afraid of the financial impact and the negative perceptions of flexibility, but today too little time and too much work get in the way.
- The majority of respondents concur that without optimal work+life flexibility businesses will suffer particularly in terms of employee health, morale and productivity.
