Good bosses care about work-life balance: study

The successful company of the future will be run by an enlightened boss who helps employees balance their work and home lives, says one of the authors of a study done for Health Canada on work and lifestyle.

By some estimates, Canadian businesses lose $1 billion a year due to absenteeism of employees overloaded by family and career demands.

A report, called the National Study on Balancing Work, Family and Lifestyle, found that 60 per cent of Canadian workers suffer from high levels of "role overload," or stress from trying to balance work and family commitments.
