I believe that the most challenging HR issue today is the issue of work/life balance.� HR professionals need to help their organizations develop ways to enable employees to better balance their work and personal life.�� Issues such as caring for elderly parents, raising small children through teenagers, etc. affect employee morale, productivity and turnover.� Employees need help balancing their desire to do well professionally and also meet their personal needs and the needs of their families.� Today, having both parents work outside the home is becoming the norm.� Organizations need to find ways to reduce stress and provide flexible work options for employees who may have a crisis in their personal life.� Many organizations give no thought to these issues and contend that they are the �employees� problems.� What these organizations don�t realize is there has been a major shift in the workplace that will require modification for future success and retention of the best personnel.
