Welcome! We are so happy you are here! At Better Balance, we understand the benefits to employers when their people "Work Smart, Spend Smart and Do What They Love".
We believe there are a lot of people who want to work. They want to use their education, experience, talents and skills. They want to contribute to their household budgets AND be available for all the priorities in their lives. We believe there are a lot of professionals who want to work and they want it to be PART-TIME.
We estimate that 10-30% of your workforce would take the opportunity to work part-time if it was offered to them. If that makes your heart beat faster in a bad way, don't panic. We can help. We can help you retain your key talent. We can help you create and manage part-time professional roles in your organization so you can reduce costs, maintain intellectual capital, reduce turnover and hire and retain top talent. Contact us and let's chat about how we can help your team or organization find better balance.
Many times employers have a perception that people who want to work part-time are lazy, unmotivated or unfocused. In fact, they are often quite the opposite. When they leave their day jobs, part-time professionals are often taking care of aging parents or children, volunteering, going to school to further their career or learning a new language or skill.
Advocating for more part-time professional opportunities is just one of Better Balance's three tenets. We think it's the most important one given the challenges employers and employees are facing right now. Watch this space for expansion into the other two tenets: spend smart and do what you love.
We would love to hear from you! How have you changed the way you work? Do you have a part-time professional role? Send us your story and you might see yourself highlighted on our blog or social media.
