No. 1 cause of bad work-life balance? Bad bosses!!


Tags: cause bad bossess work life balance



While a majority of people say they have at least a somewhat good work-life balance, 89% say it's important for employers and clients not to contact them outside of work.

That's according to a new survey from project-management systems maker workfront .

Half of participants said that work has intruded on their time spent with family and friends and caused them to miss important life events such as weddings and birthdays. And roughly 40% said it has ruined time spent with family and caused them to lose focus when they were with them.

The negative effects of off-hour interruptions bleed into time at the office, too, most commonly causing bad morale, where employees either resent each other or management, survey participants said. Next comes burnout, high turnover and the death spiral of working longer hours but getting less done.

When those surveyed were asked to list the biggest factors that can harm work-life balance, the leading answer by a mile was "bad bossess" -- defined as "demanding" "overbearing" and "mean."

Tied for second: "constantly" working beyond standard business hours and inflexibility in scheduling and time off.

A not-so-distant third were incompetent colleagues and long commutes.
