So far all the companies I have worked for r very anal at sticking to standard work hours, some even ask their staff not to start a family so soon.

I only hear the very rare case of people achieving work life balance, does anyone out there feel as frustrated about this elusive benefit?
Hi darialim

To you, what is the definition of work life balance?




For me,

work life balance = reaching office at 8am and leave office on the dot at 5.30pm.

OT is definitely a no-no!! = consider NO-work life balance

Working on weekends/public holiday/any time outside my official working hours, ie mon-fri(8am-5.30pm) = consider NO-work life balance




summary:

work life balance = reaching office at 8am and leave office on the dot at 5.30pm from monday to friday only.

the rest of the time should be spend with your family/friends/or doing personal interests/hobbies.
