The issue of how to balance work and leisure activity has been widely debated both in industry and academia. Working people, especially females, are faced with challenges at work as well as in the home. More and more females are entering the workforce; as a result they have to play multiple roles in the high-pressure modern society. Maintaining the well being is of strategic importance to a company in terms of work efficiency, employee morale, turnover and company profitability (Baldiga 2005) Despite the wide recognition of the importance of maintaining a healthy balance of employees work and life balance, it is somewhat surprising to find a relatively small amount of literature that addresses the core of the problem in this area. Of the limited literature, very few solutions have been proposed of any significant value. Even when some family-friendly companies allow practices such as flexible working time and childcare leave, few employees take advantage of these policies.
