Balancing work and family life can be facilitated or hampered by companies. Companies are increasingly aware that personal balance has an impact on performance and productivity. This article presents data from a survey about the current situation of Colombian companies with regard to the issue of work and family life balance. This data should allow conducting an assessment of organizations that follow policies and practices that enable their employees to achieve a sound balance between their work and family life. One of the conclusions of the survey is that, although Colombian companies are more and more aware that work–and–family balance is not only essential to their employees’ well–being and commitment to the organization, but also has a significant impact on performance and productivity, the development and implementation of a comprehensive work–and–family life balance program at the companies are now in a rather incipient stage.
