RVDA Hosting Work/Life Balance Webinar

Mon Jun 26, 2017

145072686053695.jpgFairfax, Virginia - Work/life balance means different things to different generations. Flexibility in programs is crucial to address the multiple perceptions and needs for work/life balance. Consider the recent Ernst & Young’s Global Generations Research survey which found that more than 75 percent of the Millennials and Generation X surveyed are part of a dual-income couple in which both spouses work full time. But with Baby boomers, only 47 percent of the couples have a full-time working spouse. All three groups appreciate flexible work scheduling. Generation X and Millennials may insist on flexible work schedules, while Baby Boomers value onsite employee wellness programs or personal assistance programs.

Join the RV Learning Center and KPA on Thursday, June 29 from 12 - 1 p.m. EDT for this educational webinar. Whether your goal is to improve retention, increase engagement or decrease absenteeism, join the webinar to learn how to offer a comprehensive work/life balance program that works for all generations and how to demonstrate the ROI of your program.
