"The challenge of balance is the dual responsibility of organizations and individuals. When individuals and organizations understand and act on the need for balancing the four elements, they are moving together toward a holistic workplace, one that recognizes a range of employee needs, the interconnectedness of those needs, and the relationship of such needs with achieving organizational goals. Career development efforts in the future will address more and more of these last two elements. Practitioners, in the ideal, should seek this balance in their own lives and model it for others."
