Some recent findings from Avaya research show the extent to which employees’ over commitment to work can negatively impact their personal lives. Avaya Research is a global leader in enterprise communications systems. Avaya’s research report showed some of the negative impacts employees suffer from overworking.
According to a survey of 700 senior managers from small and medium businesses (SMBs) in the United Kingdom and Germany, the survey was conducted in the Summer 2011
Overall, 81 percent of people surveyed said they experienced negative consequences as a direct result from spending too much time at work--rather than other areas of their life.
On the other hand, 83 percent of those same people said flexible working helps solve some of their personal problems and relieve stress at the same time.
The survey added that businesses can help employees improving their work-life balance by offering flexibility-boosting communications tools.
However, the survey still reported that many workers suffered negative consequences that went beyond the daily stresses of office life. The following are a few examples of problems they described.
Although businesses have made some progress in helping employees achieve a better work-life balance through flexible working policies, people are still saying this practice isn’t as prevalent as it should be.
Over three quarters (76%) of SMBs offer employees some sort of flexible working, yet people spend an average 74% of their working week chained to their desks.

Many businesses rely on a collection of communication tools that they adopt to address specific needs as they arise. This strategy may seem to work in the beginning, but eventually will lead to a system that is cumbersome to use, difficult to explain to new hires, expensive, and effective in some areas, but full of gaps. more
