To do this, companies need to understand what is important to them and what they value most in their work situations. Having a good work-life balance is one of the top factors.

Dealing with Work Interruptions

While sometimes they can be a welcome distraction, such as a quick conversation with a co-worker about an enjoyable subject, there are other times when you are deep in concentration and a distraction steers you off course.
