She added, "The legal and accounting professions are both facing high attrition and a shrinking pool of qualified replacements, and PAR has documented how the culture of long hours in these professions has contributed to this situation. Each person selected for the Council brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about work/life issues, as well as a commitment to helping professionals and their employers find common ground where they can both benefit from balanced hours.”
