Work-Life Balance and the Impact of Remote Working

Coventry University via FutureLearn


Explore the history and outcomes of a work-life balance in employed individuals

Working individuals often find themselves juggling between their work and social lives, aiming for the ever-elusive work-life balance. This course focuses on the context in which work-life balance has grown, comparing the key theories of work-life conflict, work-life integration and enrichment, and boundary management.

It also investigates the future of work, evaluating how technology allows individuals to work more flexibly, but in the meantime risking less time to switch off and recover from work. Flexible working practices as a means to enhance your work-life balance are also discussed.

This course is aimed at people who are looking to further understand the key factors for a work-life balance, and what can be done in an organisation to achieve this.

  • Poon Ho Chuen completed this course and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    An introductory course about work-life balance. It introduces several theories on thinking about work life balance and one can think about it in adjusting their mindsets.

    Although the topics of flexible working and work-life balance are linked together, I think that no matter you work rigidly or flexibly, work-life balance is still an important thing.

    The discussion may be too confined to U.K. only.
