Who knew?

I'm back in the office from Spring Break and found an interesting bit of info in my inbox. Despite all the stories of woe, companies are doing something right. Work/life balance may have seemed like an unattainable dream for many of us in the past, but a new survey suggests the tide is shifting
OfficeTeam, a staffing service, found 53 percent of workers said their employers are very supportive of their efforts to achieve work/life balance; Only 10 percent of employees and 5 percent of managers said their companies are unsupportive of work/life balance concerns.
Diane Domeyer, executive director of OfficeTeam, points out that as little as a decade ago, the survey results might have been different. “Telecommuting, job-share and flextime options were once the exception. Today, these and other employee benefits are increasingly common, " she says. Do you agree with Domeyer?
