Work-Life Effectiveness

Work-Life  effectiveness is a talent management strategy that fosters strong performance for both individuals and organizations over the long-term by promoting work environments that are capable of responding to changes in business needs quickly, creatively, and efficiently while providing employees the control they need to work smarter, address their non-work priorities, and be resilient and effective.
