"Balancing Home Life and Career"
Call begins at 11:00 a.m. Pacific/12 Noon Mountain/1:00 Central Daylight/2:00 p.m. Eastern Time

"Too much work, not enough hours in the day." "Annual leave! Are you kidding? Who can afford to be away from work now?" "Kids soccer game or extra hour on the phone?"

With the fewer people to get the job done, more folks doing their job and that of the one who was furloughed, and the perception that if you take time away from the office now (even though you have earned it legitimately) your supervisor may think youíre not really committed to the job. Will you be the next to go if you take vacation?

Regardless of the current economic situation, todayís workers are constantly facing these dilemmas. Speakers for this call will share they own life experiences with finding time to fit in or balance the demands and desires of family and home life with those of their career and employer.
