After working for one man for 9 years and running his entire company only to have his son show up one day without notice and shut the company down totally I want to tell you that I will not be working 70+ hours again for ANYONE. For 9 years no vacation was taken without multiple calls a day from the business. Once this recession is over most employees I know are looking forward to finding greener pastures. There is absolutely no work life balance in many industries.

Dan, thanks for this article. The 'heavy' problem has been building for the past few years. It's come to the point where Comp/HR professionals must not only have the difficult conversation with leaders but also be able to sell them on looking beyond short-term results toward long-term success. This could be the biggest and most critical 'project' many of us encounter in our careers. Will we be up to the challenge?
