Work-Life Balance in Japan: A Myth or a Possible Reality?

For so long we have been told that we should all be considering our "work-life balance" (WLB) especially in Japan where there is a low birth rate, the population is aging fast, and work-related suicides are on the rise.

But what is really happening? Are we getting time to pursue other interests, spend time with our families, and take that much-needed vacation or has the PDA, email, blackberry and cell phone taken all that away?

Better yet, what does "work-life balance" really mean? Can we really strike a balance between work and life? More so, can it be done in Japan?

If you, just like other HR professionals, are concerned or curious about this burning issue, come and join us in this luncheon event and enjoy the lively discussion with Ms. Anne Good, President of Eureka! and gain professional and personal insights on what this WLB is all about.
