How to change a company culture?

Interesting discussion today in The Miami Herald's newsroom panel on work/life balance. How do you change a culture where walking out the door at a decent hour is considered leaving early? The business editors met on the subject last week and decided they would each get a night to leave early without any guilt. Some working moms said they have just learned to walk out at 6:30 p.m. and not care about what people say or think of them. A copy editor says his night shift actually keeps his hours under control. By working at night, he can control his hours rather than tyical editors who work long days that extend into the evening. The real question raised by the younger people in this newsroom, can we be journalists and still have an outside life?
