Work-life integration the new norm

With another year unfolding comes new goals and objectives as businesses and organizations finalize plans for the next few months. But business planning and strategy has ceased to be just about setting sales targets and performance metrics: As more companies  increasingly become aware of the need to keep employees engaged as a means of ensuring business success, organizations are looking at human resource management and development as a key part of the planning phase.
