Employee work-life balance often makes headlines but not for the right reasons. Many companies fear an employee ‘revelation’ blogpost that reveals that their nine-to-five might not quite be so. These ‘exposé’ style pieces always make the news and they always leave companies scrabbling to sanitise their employer brand.
In fact, Uber – yes, they made the wrong headlines for the wrong reasons again – were hit recently by claims that they maintained a culture whereby engineers were forced to almost always be on call. This kind of poor work-life balance resulted in the ride-hail firm having to defend their workplace and HR practices.
