The work-life balance is important for anyone who has a life outside of work. Some people make their careers their whole lives and they manage to be successful because they do not have any real life outside of their work. They live to work and that is fine for them.

It is better if the company promotes maintaining a work-life balance that effectively supports the emotional, social, mental, and spiritual health needs of all workers. This is how a company shows it cares about its workers, and that kind of demonstration goes a long way in helping workers to feel valued.
