The Importance of Conciliation: a quality of life factor

The conciliation of professional life with family and personal life is increasingly recognized as one of the main factors of quality of life for citizens. Workers, especially younger ones, have increasingly demanded to concile their personal lives with work, seeking a healthy balance between these two important realities. This right, which for a long time was neglected, is now recognized by the society and is a requirement when looking for a job

However, achieving this conciliation is not a simple task, requiring a joint effort by both workers and companies. It is important to point out that conciling personal and professional life does not necessarily imply a perfect balance at all times. The goal is to find a balance over time, ensuring that both personal and professional life are valued and respected.

During the pandemic, teleworking was the most viable and advantageous option, allowing many companies to continue their activities and workers to keep their jobs. However, although it is adopted in specific cases with undeniable advantages, it cannot be easily generalized as the only or best way to balance professional and personal life.

There are several measures that can be adopted to promote the conciliation between professional and personal life, such as flexible schedules, work on an hourly basis, shift or rotating schedules, among others. In addition, it is possible to grant layoffs, absences and leaves to help employees concile their family and personal responsibilities. It is also essential that communication is carried out in an inclusive and egalitarian way, with adequate disclosure of workers' rights and duties.

In conclusion, conciling personal and professional life is a current challenge, but also an essential need. Workers and companies must recognize that happiness and personal well-being are fundamental for professional success and for the growth of organizations.
