The project aims to raise awareness of worklife balance issues with employers and through a series of free workshops is designed to help employers improve their recruitment and retention of staff; to deal with stress in the workplace; to manage their workforces flexibly and to achieve and sustain work-life balance in their workplaces. The project to date has delivered:

  • Four Managing Workplace Stress seminars to over 60 employers
  • three series of a programme of four work-life balance workshops to over 40 employers to cover Business Benefits to Work-Life Balance Recruitment, Selection & Retention, Managing a Flexible Workforce and Achieving and Sustaining Work-life Balance.

Jo Randall, the project manager, has been facilitating an Employer Forum for employers across Worcestershire to share best practice in human resources management and work-life balance. The Forum meets quarterly with guest speakers presenting on topical issues with opportunity for members to exchange ideas and is followed by a networking lunch.
