Zoltan Vadkerti and Agnes UhereczkyWhen the authors of this practical, well-researched, and easy-to-read  book  on  work-life  supports  were  looking  for  the  right organization  to  provide  their  book  Foreword,  they  came  to CUWFA. After reading it myself, I was happy to do just that on behalf  of  CUWFA  and  what  we  represent.  This  book  is  a testament  to  and  encouragement  for  dedicated  work-life professionals inside organizations to receive the full support and resources necessary to positively impact employees.

Enjoy this interview with the authors and I hope you'll add the book to your reading list!
