Work-life balance for all: best practice examples from EU Member States

This brochure, created by the European Commission, presents 20 best practice examples of EU-funded projects that have promoted work-life balance in the EU’s Member States.

This catalogue of examples, which include testimonials from project representatives and beneficiaries, has been developed to encourage exchanges of experience and the implementation of innovative approaches to fostering work-life balance across Member States.

A key theme of many of the examples relates to gender and the representation of women in the labour market – an issue that goes hand-in-hand with the question of how Member States and businesses promote and facilitate balance between professional and family life for all workers. The selected projects demonstrate a range of approaches and initiatives, all of which bring benefits for citizens, businesses and society as a whole, and contribute to the EU’s priority to promote equal opportunities between men and women.
