    Abstract

    The concept of balancing work and life has become an important lens through which to understand employee well-being. As the authors to this book convey in the introduction to chapter 1, work-life balance (WLB) has increased significantly in popularity in both academic and industry circles, and this has largely been influenced by the incessant blurring of the boundaries between work and life in contemporary societies. Indeed, this book is well-timed as knowledge workers reflect on their own experiences of working through a global pandemic, during which many will have endured varying degrees of enhanced work-life conflict (WLC). As its title suggests, this book is aimed at distributed knowledge professionals, specifically those working in the IT sector; however, as a non-IT professional reader I found the insights equally relatable to other sectors where knowledge work prevails.
