Finding the ideal work-life balance

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 2:45 pm

Don’t you miss being at school? Twelve weeks of holidays, playing until the sun goes down…and now, as a responsible adult, you have to work all but four weeks of the year.

That could all change though, with a new type of job coming onto the scene.

A major engineering firm has begun trials of a new type of contract that would give employees 12 weeks of holidays a year.

The holidays would coincide with the school holidays, so engineers with children can better manage work and family.

To discuss this new initiative, Mel and Jeziel chatted to associate professor Julia Richardson, from the School of Management at Curtin Business School.
