In his speech at the recent SHRM annual conference, former CEO of General Electric Jack Welch stated that "there is no such things as work-life balance."
In the speech, Welch explained the choice men and women make to raise children while taking time form work and how this choice inevitably handicaps parents wishing to get a fast-paced executive position.
Is work-life balance possible? Can working parents take time for family while still making it to the top of their organization? What can organizations do to make this possible? Should they?
