The first female chief executive officer (CEO) of Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (Vancity) believes in the importance of developing a positive workplace culture. She feels that successful employers take a progressive attitude toward promoting a healthy work-life balance. She also serves as a role model to her employees by working hard but communicating clearly about needing to be present for her family. When an independent consultant surveys the attitudes around work-life balance at Vancity, however, he has a number of recommendations for the CEO to consider, all of them aimed at improving the work-life balance for men in order to improve the work-life balance for everyone at the firm. Also see supplemental case 9B14C026.
