Work/Life/Family Balance

Under the Three in Line for work/life/family balance, the Secretariat-General of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (SGPCM), as a signatory of the Work/Life Balance pact, undertook the commitment to foster balance between the three components of all its workers’ lives.

In order to fulfil its mission in this field, it set up the Work/Life/Family Balance Management System, which was certified by NP 4552:2016.

Under the Secretariat-General of the Presidency of the Council of Minister’s Work/Life Balance Management System, a series of measures are implemented or under way aimed at the people who work at the SGPCM and other System stakeholders.

Please find below some examples of the existing measures:

  • Promoting remote work;
