Voluntary flexible working provisions have been introduced to enable SA Health employees to better balance work, personal life and family commitments. They are designed to operate to the mutual benefit of SA Health, its clients and its employees; and take into consideration the operational needs and client service responsibilities of workgroups involved.

The concept of work life balance recognises that all employees have commitments outside of the workplace and that employees have the right to quality work as well as time for individual pursuits. Work life balance is about helping staff to maintain healthy, rewarding lifestyles that in turn lead to improvements in productivity and performance.
