Agnes Uhereczky is the co-founder of the WorkLife HUB, and the host of the WorkLife HUB podcast. Agnes is a change management professional, who is passionate about helping organisations reach their highest potential in attracting talent and improving employee wellbeing. She is also interested in research, and has coordinated a number of research projects into exploring the new world of work, learning about how working parents and carers cope with daily demands of work and family life.

Zoltan Vadkerti is an entrepreneur, speaker and workplace consultant. He is the co-founder and Executive Director at the WorkLife HUB. He studied economics in both the Netherlands and Hungary before he moved to Brussels to become a lobbyist on EU social and employment policies. That experience, and many others, led him to an interest in the organisation of work and specifically on the quality of work and work-life integration.

L’ouvrage livre énormément de pistes, un riche partage d’expérience, des idées à tester ou encore une méthodologie pour évaluer la performance de l’organisation en matière d’intégration travail-vie privée.

Les auteurs insistent également sur l’importance de dépasser les mesures et initiatives favorisant un bon équilibre de vie, pour véritablement ancrer la préoccupation dans l’organisation même du travail, le job design et les pratiques RH dans leur ensemble. « L’intégration travail-vie personnelle ne se résume pas à un événement un jour sur l’année, pointent-ils. Elle requiert un soutien systématique et structuré et une vision à long terme, ancrés dans la culture de l’organisation. »

Nick Brook, le Directeur Global Facilities de chez Pinsent Masons, cabinet d’avocat employant plus de 2.500 collaborateurs : "Uhereczky et Vadkerti rendent leurs recherche sur 10 années accessibles à tous. Les études de cas de différents pays et secteurs, donnent un aperçu des défis et des réussites de cette révolution. One Life est un livre informatif et pratique pour toute personne intéressée à appliquer ces principes à leur organisation. "

There is a lot of writing on work life integration, but it is mostly aimed at individuals, providing coaching around issues such as time management. The book aims to address the gap between the individual and their employer.
