The choices leaders make today will have wide-reaching consequences for years to come. While a renewed emphasis on work-life balance may have profound effects on the wellbeing and productivity of the workforce, it will also inevitably reshape so much else – not just the personal lives of the workers, but the companies they work at, the cities they work in, and the next generation of workers they are models for.
