Work life balance: more important today than ever
according to an Accenture survey of senior executives conducted between January and May.  About 20% said they definitely wouldn’t, while 35% said they would fully restore headcount in no more than two years. So what does this mean for middle and junior executive managers ?  It means that management is going to expect you to maintain the same level of output with fewer people to do the job.  It also means, at a time when customers expect more, that you won’t be able to provide the level of service that is necessary to maintain current business.
