A recent study in American Sociological Review found that seven out of ten American workers feel as if their work-life balance is out of whack. That’s the bad news. The good news is that when the researchers conducted a large-scale experiment with a 700-person IT department, they found a simple (but often ignored) solution to the problem: employees who were given more control of their own schedules, and who received support from their supervisors, reported feeling less stress and more balance than their peers. The takeaway: employees can’t achieve work-life balance on their own. Companies need to play a part, too.
