Successful organizations create great people places. They focus on both human and financial assets by placing a heavy emphasis on meeting the needs of employees. Work and personal life are often viewed as competing priorities, yet some organizations are realizing the complimentary nature of the two. Results are a more collaborative approach to achieving work and personal objectives, with benefits to both the organization and the employee. Utilizing an action research methodology of diagnosing, action planning, implementing, and evaluating, this paper will evaluate work life benefit issues at the City of Lafayette. Action research is a cyclical inquiry process that involves diagnosing a problem situation, planning action steps, implementing, and evaluating the intervention.
