Creating an action plan to improve work-life balance

Published: 18 Oct 2012

Jumping from job and field to another, while learning new skills, is a pattern that defines careers.

Recent surveys suggest that financial commitments, like homeownership or family, are a tougher proposition when you can't expect to stay in a job for long or to earn more in real terms than you do at 40.

Given that employers seem to value having long-term employees less than they used to, that younger generations have less conventional expectations and that 43% of workers claim they’d take less pay for more meaningful work, there is clearly no longer a universal view of career success.
