August is #WorkFamilyBalance Awareness Month 

Join us in raising awareness of Work-Family Balance because every parent deserves to flourish in their career without missing out on the joys of family life.


It's time to recognise parents at work

Welcome to Work-Family Balance Awareness Month, a dedicated time in August where we turn the spotlight on the challenging, yet rewarding, journey of balancing professional aspirations with family responsibilities.

The scales between work and family life are often difficult to balance. This month is more than just a recognition; it's a movement aimed at empowering working parents, inspiring corporations, and raising awareness of work-family dynamics.

August is a pivotal month when parents often face the greatest challenges due to school holidays – we aim to raise awareness, spark conversations, influence workplace changes and create a supportive network. We believe that achieving a balance between progressing your career and family responsibilities shouldn't be an uphill battle but a feasible and rewarding journey.

Whether you're a new parent trying to manage work, or an employer seeking to create a more family-friendly workspace, this month is for you.

Achieving a healthy work-family balance is not only beneficial for employees but also crucial for the success of organisations.

A recent report by Hays revealed that more than half (56%) of employees are willing to accept a lower-paid job in exchange for a better work-life balance, and a third (33%) consider work-life balance to be the most "crucial consideration" when looking for a job.
