Every person who works nine-to-five or even longer shifts knows how hard it can be to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Many of us end up making sacrifices either in our careers, or in our personal lives. Luckily, there are caring employers who know how important it is for their employees to have time for their families, hobbies and, most importantly, themselves, so they try to come up with various solutions.Recently, marketing consultant Shaneé Moret shared one employer’s solution.

According to Moret, the friend took the offer in a heartbeat, which prompted her to think about how other people would feel about this proposal.
