This week, Hyatt Place released the results of a national study revealing that the number of Americans struggling with work-life balance has nearly doubled to 71 percent since 2006. While a struggle to achieve work-life balance is not new, the study pointed out why that balance is no longer achievable. Rather than compartmentalize their life, the average 2010 American is instead multitasking all day, every day (hello – that would be me!).
A few interesting statistics included:
· 83 percent of Americans state that they often take care of work matters from home
· 59 percent state that they often handle personal matters at work
· 62 percent of respondents say that they are ‘constantly multitasking
· On average, someone working from home is doing five tasks simultaneously
Hyatt Place first identified this multitasking lifestyle as an emerging audience when it launched in 2006 and built its hotels to meet the needs of this specific group. Now, Hyatt Place wants to help Americans stay productive in their everyday life. To help guests balance work and home responsibilities, Hyatt Place has partnered with TaskUs.com, a virtual personal assistant service, to give away 2 months of service to 20 lucky winners in a national sweepstakes starting next week. And here at Role Mommy, two lucky readers will finally get some much needed help with their busy lives that includes the personal assistant service and a 2 night stay at Hyatt Place!
