Time for Life
Being unable to balance work and life has negative impacts on health and wellbeing and can cause stress, relationship issues and reduced productivity.
We can improve productivity and support people working in construction by ensuring people have adequate time to rest and pursue life activities outside of work.
The construction workforce reports significantly higher working hours than those working in other industries. Accordingly, 59% report dissatisfaction with their work-life balance, compared with just 39% of the general population.
This has powerful adverse impact on productivity and employee retention.
Under ‘Time for Life’, the Culture Standard will seek to improve work life balance for its workers by introducing measures to address excessive working hours for employees and provide access to optimal ways of working.
