Meet the Balanced WorkLife Team

Balanced WorkLife Company is the brain child of co-founders Jim and Lori Dryburgh. After a combined 35 years at IBM, they decided to start their own business, helping professionals get further in their careers. Over 15 years later, we’ve had the opportunity to work with senior executives at incredible companies including Dell, CA Technologies, SAP, and many more. We’re helping reverse the trend of so many workers being unsatisfied in their jobs by helping them discover their “work personalities” and then giving them the tools to make a life they enjoy.
