The issue of work–life balance has become a hot topic in many Asian societies. In this chapter we discuss governmental interventions and social re-engineering efforts to facilitate work–life balance in East Asia. We begin by setting out the context for governmental work–life interventions. Next, we survey major elements of work–life interventions in Singapore and South Korea, with the intention of exploring the impetus for and hindrance to governmental work–life interventions. After summarizing lessons learned from the past policy implementations, we conclude with some recommendations.
