(A) which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing (OUT - because it needs a verb not a participle)
(B) which permit employees balancing home and work responsibilities better will realize (Close - but which is non restrictive )
(C) that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize (Correct, "that" implies a restrictive clause, has the correct verb form - will realize)
(D) that permit employees a better balance between the responsibilities of home and work, thus realizing (OUT - because it needs a verb not a participle)
(E) such that employees are permitted a balance between home and work responsibilities, and they will realize (OUT, who are "they", such that is awkward too)
