" ... work-life balance has become an increasingly important issue—for the health and well-being of individuals and working families, and for our overall economic competitiveness. No longer are work-life policies seen as a 'perk' or accommodation for those at the top of the ladder," says Steve Wing, President of Corporate Voices for Working Families, in the introductory foreword. "Today, business leaders, working mothers and fathers, advocates, community leaders, and local, state, and federal officials understand that our ability as a nation to harness the talent of our workforce to be globally competitive depends on family-friendly practices that help all workers manage both work and life."
