How often do you work late in the office? Long working hours can create stress and burnout and affect family life.

In a bid to improve work-life balance for British families, National Work-Life Week will take place from October 3rd -7th. The organisers, Working Families, are promoting ‘Go Home On Time Day’ on Wednesday 5th.

The event is an opportunity for both employers and employees to focus on well-being at work and the importance of work-life balance.

Research shows that many parents are working far more than their contracted hours every week, and can’t spend as much time as they’d like with their children.

National Work Life Week encourages employees, business owners and managers to think about doing things differently. This might involve flexible working options and family-friendly policies.

So if you want to support Go Home on Time Day, do exactly that! Go home on time on October 5 and think about the changes you can make to your work life balance.

Post a picture of your watch or clock as you leave work and post it to Twitter or Facebook saying “I’m going home on time today to…” with the hashtag #timetorebalance.

You can also find downloadable resources for National Work Life Week and sign up for a Facebook event to spread the word through social media.
