    This global consultancy has spent $110 million in the past 10 years to address the burnout problem endemic to its industry. In cooperation with a Harvard Business School professor, the firm instituted a program called PTO–Predictability, Teaming and Open Communication–that combines more conventional work-life balance efforts with attempts to rethink their work processes to make the work itself more meaningful. PTO has been a hit with employees. One consultant told us: “PTO is proof [that] BCG really cares about making our lives manageable and make sure we don’t drop the ball on key life events. This is one of best things about the company and it is unique in the industry.” The firms says that PTO has led to a 74% increase in reported intentions to stay at BCG for the long term.
