PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF WORK-LIFE BALANCE: SEGMENTATION-INTEGRATION ORGANIZATIONAL POLICIES IN SERVICES COMPANIES IN ROMANIA

Maria-Lavinia Florea and Anca Borza

Proceedings of the INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE, 2017, vol. 11, issue 1, 928-942

Abstract: This paper investigates the perceived importance of work-life balance from a managerial perspective and how the preoccupation for work-life balance translates into organizational practices and policies, via several case studies on Romanian subsidiaries of multinational companies. We create an overview of the most important work-life balance current practices and propose a method of assessing where companies position themselves on the segmentation-integration continuum. We make recommendations on how companies can further adapt their policies to ensure greater work-life balance for employees and thus positive organizational outcomes.
