Work/life or Both
A personal observation: Employees with a good & happy family life are not only productive and effective at work but also very balanced in their thoughts.Most organisations fail to encompass the family concept in creating employee policies because they use work/life concepts only as an advertisement to attract talent. Unless organisations live these concepts and employees take benefit of it, not only it will lead to burnout but also attrition. Work/life concepts such as job sharing, telecommuting, flex schedules, alternate work arrangements are superb tools to bind talent to orgnanisations by giving them the flexibility to balance their work and life.
