Work life balance practices are one of the key topics on HR agenda and are widely discussed by the scholar academics, employers and governments in the recent years. The literature review presented in this book shows that work life balance programmes have multiple benefits for employees and organizations. They have bearing on job satisfaction, better productivity and improved retention. They also induce employee loyalty, engagement, commitment and support high performance culture. Companies encouraging use of work life balance policies to accommodate non-work activities in other life domains achieve better motivation from staff, reduced absenteeism rates and face lower recruitment and training costs in the organizational life cycle. This book seeks to examine effects of WLB practices on employee engagement and turnover intention in the Further Education and Training sector in Ireland. It has been discovered that there is a gap in the literature that would specifically focus on Irish FET sector playing a significant role in the growth of Irish economy and business enterprises.
