October is recognized as National Work and Family Month to remind employers and others about the importance of work-life effectiveness. In 2003, the U.S. Senate made a resolution to designate National Work and Family month, which was reaffirmed by both houses of the U.S. Congress. President Barack Obama reinforced this designation and recognized the challenges of juggling job and caregiving responsibilities when he issued a presidential statement on National Work and Family Month in 2010.
The U.S. Senate unanimously approved Senate Resolution 533 to designate October 2012 as National Work and Family Month, stating:
Employers that offer effective work-life balance programs are better able to recruit more talented employees, maintain a happier, healthier and less stressed workforce, and retain experienced employees, which produces a more productive and stable workforce with less voluntary turnover.
Think about flexibility, wellness, business goals and balance.
