The supporting role of management is also very important, so that employees can arrange and coordinate all spheres of life. At best, the leader himself/herself is a role model who practices this; but even if not, to at least say out loud that this is allowed in this work environment and that because of this, if you ask for something like this, that it is not accepted as it makes you a bad worker.
