Wickham, M and Parker , M.L. and Fishwick, S (2006) Exploring a work-life balance impact audit: an aid to informed consensus? In: ANZAM 2006, 6-9 December 2006, Rockhampton, Queensland.
The effective management of employees’ work-life balance requires organisations to recognise and account for the array of non-work roles that impact their working-lives. Despite the literary attention given to the ‘work-life balance’ in recent years, however, contemporary authors still note the concept’s inadequacy both in terms of its definition and administration. In order to explore the boundaries of contemporary ‘work-life balance’, this paper adopts an Organisational Role Theory (ORT) perspective. The paper suggests that in order to manage these discrete impacts effectively, human resource managers should consider employing a Work-Life Balance Impact Audit as part of their job evaluation and performance management processes.
