Over 500 full- or part-time office workers were asked, "How supportive is your company of its employees' efforts to achieve work/life balance?" Fifty-three percent said their employer was "very supportive" and another 37 percent said their employer was "somewhat supportive." Only 5 percent said their company was "not supportive at all."

Senior executives from the 1,000 largest U.S. companies were also asked the same question. Of the 150 executives/managers surveyed, 45 percent believed the company was "very supportive" in helping workers achieve work/life balance.

Diane Domeyer, executive director of OfficeTeam, noted both the importance of employer support to workers seeking work/life balance, and that there are benefits to employee and employer alike: "Providing employees the flexibility to address personal commitments, without compromising the needs of the business, can make the difference between a good working environment and a great one. Giving staff choices for how they accomplish business objectives can improve morale, increase retention rates, and build both leadership and time-management skills."

Dormeyer also noted how much things have changed for the better in terms of employer support, even in the past decade: "Telecommuting, job-share and flextime options were once the exception. Today, these and other employee benefits are increasingly common."
