“My definition of work-life balance is trying to make each aspect of my life as fulfilling and successful as possible.”
|Job title:||Senior Package Design Manager|
What’s your personal definition of work-life balance?
My definition of work-life balance is trying to make each aspect of my life as fulfilling and successful as possible. Personal time with family, work & career and my health & well-being all impact each other, so I try to keep each aspect on track.
Did you consciously choose a certain life balance?
Yes. I was trying to work fulltime, but with my husband’s schedule and the demands of my two little guys, I was starting to feel stressed. I felt that I was doing less than my personal best in each area important to me.
Was a healthy work-life balance a criterion in deciding on a specific employer?
It wasn’t when I started, but I’m extremely grateful that Henkel has been able to work with me to provide me with flexibility as my priorities and life demands have shifted.
What positive effects does your personal work-life approach have?
I’m spending more time with my children, but still get time in the office – which is also an important part of who I am.
