Ian Sohn, President of digital agency Wunderman Chicago, posted a rather marvellous defence of work-life balance from a boss’ point of view, suggesting that his employees never need to apologise for working flexibly to make work work.
So, no more … I’m going home now, but I promise to get back online and check emails after dinner … no more long explanations about why you really can’t finish that report on a Sunday, and why it will have to wait until Monday … and definitely no more feeling you have to say, I want to work from home tomorrow just because I need some space and silence.
Rather refreshing, isn’t it? And the best part? Mr Sohn concludes:
“I never want you to feel horrible for being a human being.”
