High-performance management gets low marks

2003

Long working hours and so-called 'high performance' management practices are contributory factors to a work-life imbalance,a ccording to research in the British Journal of Industrial Relations.

Researchers concluded that "overall, the results suggest a conflict between high-performance practices and work-life balance policies."

"Britain's work-life balance problem is not simply a matter of working hours. We find clear evidence that high performance practices are an important, if previously ignored, source of negative spillover, even after controlling for working hours".
