Perth Not-For-Profit People Breakfast
Beyond work-life balance: How to achieve work-life harmony in your organisation
Thursday 15 June 2017, Perth
Work-life balance has long been lauded as a goal. Yet too many people in the NFP sector still leave each day feeling over-worked and exhausted.
It’s time to try something different.
Join us on Thursday 15 June in Perth for a challenging and informative breakfast presentation on how to abandon the idea of “work-life balance” in your not-for-profit organisation, and instead adopt something more powerful: The idea of “work-life harmony”. The session will be led by Dr Clare Allen, CEO of VisAbility (Guide Dogs WA/TAS) – providing services and opportunities to the vision-impaired.
Clare is also an author and business evangelist, advising a range of organisations on how to improve their own HR practices and adopt a more harmonious view of work that results in better outcomes for everyone.
Clare will share her own experiences of leading VisAbility WA, and share seven key principles for how NFPs can create “work-life harmony”, empowering staff to achieve more better and healthier results.
During this breakfast event you'll learn:
- Why work-life harmony should replace work-life balance;
- The power of a values-driven culture in your organisation; and
- How to bring the balance between money and mission.
