U.S. workers face an increasing amount of pressure to be successful both at work and home. Today, half of U.S. employees report feeling overworked and rising numbers of employees report difficulty balancing work and family. Work stressors are rising as technological innovations allow employees to be constantly accessible to their employers, and family friendly policies are not the panacea that they were originally predicted to be. Meanwhile, many employees face increased family demands (e.g., more dual-earner households, steadily rising number of employees with eldercare responsibilities). In this talk, I provide a brief overview of the importance of reducing employee stress and improving well-being. Drawing from current research examining these topics, I summarize key challenges facing employees and organizations and offer suggestions for creating and maintaining a healthy, happy, and well-balanced workforce.
