Lack of work-life balance is causing employees to misbehave at work, according to a new survey. “Conflicts between work responsibilities and personal life were largely seen as causing stress and job dissatisfaction, which in turn led to poor decisions and bad behavior -- whether it's stealing office supplies, lying to co-corkers and managers, or passing along company secrets, the survey found.”
This seems like good news. Not the lying and stealing part, but the part about lack of work-life balance negatively affecting employee behavior. Doesn’t seems surprising but perhaps employers need some concrete incentives to become more open and flexible in terms of work schedules.
