"Work-Life is alive and well. Senior management commitment is robust and budgets and staffing are holding their own. Yet, there is a curious mismatch between the most serious workforce issues companies are facing and where they are investing their resources in 2010."
The Study: In February 2010, WFD Consulting and the Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP) at WorldatWork launched a survey to understand the current state of work-life among U.S.-based corporations and plans and prospects for the future. Fifty-five, mostly large companies responded. Representing a wide range of industries including energy, financial services, food and agriculture, health care, hi-tech, manufacturing, professional services, and pharmaceuticals, about half are based entirely in North America. Among those with a global workforce, one-third indicate that more of their employees are outside North America, while two-thirds have more in North America.
