ECCP's Women in Business Committee: Work-Life Balance Forum

Pasay AB Function Room, Makati Shangri-La

Membership Meeting & Forum

Throughout the years, work-life balance has been repeatedly expressed as a challenge for professional women --- striking a balance between career and personal life. With women empowerment and wellbeing at the front and center of our agenda, the ECCP is organizing its Work-Life Balance Forum. This event seeks to underscore the need for work-life balance and how such can support women’s holistic development. The Forum will also feature various stories of women from different fields who have been successful on this front.

Why is Work-Life Balance Important? This could yield the following results:

  • Increase in productivity and decrease in absenteeism
  • Improvement in employee’s overall health and well-being
  • Employee loyalty and motivation
  • Lowered staff turnover and recruitment costs
  • Improvement in company’s reputation
