    Cons

    An employee may feel torn about working full time especially after having a family, to highlight one common reason why employees want to job share. It's not just the workload that they consider, it is also their real desire to spend more time with their child/children.
    Work-life balance issues are important to employees, especially the millennials who became the majority of employees in the workplace in March 2015. They want to volunteer for causes, take up leisure activities such as sports and hobbies, and stay closely in touch with friends.
    Employees who experience work-life balance are less stressed and may more effectively contribute when they are working. Less commuting positively impacts employee stress as well.

    Advice to Management

    1. How do you support your employees?
    Do you regularly ask 'How are you?' Listen when your employees ask for help? Give people a chance to shine? Give them time to train so that they can do their job effectively? Are you sensitive to the pressures on employees both in and out of work?

    2. Do you help your employees understand what they need to do?
    Do you set them goals? Give feedback on performance? Provide regular opportunities to speak one to one? How else do you communicate with them?

    3. When was the last time you asked employees for their views?
    Do you involve employees in decision making? Encourage employees to come up with ideas? Act upon feedback received, or explain why you haven't if you don't? Work as a team?

    4. How do you manage difficult situations?
    Do you deal with problems quickly, fairly and consistently? Stop arguments escalating? Ask for help when you need it? How do you deal with sensitive issues?

    5. Are you a good role model?
    Do you treat people with consideration? Act calmly under pressure? Act with integrity? Lead by example?
