Work Life Balance Cited by IT Professionals

Lawyers aren't the only professionals concerned about work life balance. According to Gartner's 2007 IT Market Compensation Study, work/life balance is cited as one of the top reasons for employee turnover in IT departments.  The study also found that one of the most-powerful work/life programs is teleworking, a/k/a telecommuting. Unfortunately, only 1 percent to 18 percent of survey participants' IT workforces have some type of telework arrangement. 

We say "unfortunate" because it's well-accepted that companies that recognize the multitude of demands placed on professionals as they try to juggle work and family, and offer programs to help employees better handle those demands, will enjoy greater employee loyalty and productivity.
