Do you support your employees?
We’re talking about more than just coffee and wine (but they help!). Investing in your people, living your company values, being open to new ideas, they pay dividends! Work-life balance is a constant struggle for the majority, especially these days when ‘switching off’ once you are home can be challenging. The act of balancing home, work and everything else that life throws at you can be exhausting and emotionally draining at times. This is why the understanding and support of employers makes such a big difference.
Today, achieving work-life balance is a talking point and there are many views of what this is. Lots of businesses say they are supportive of their employees, though there is often limited action.
A happy, healthy and valued employee means effectiveness and productivity is increased and long standing loyalty is gained (with reduced costs associated).
There are numerous situations that can arise; doctors’ appointments, Dad getting to a school assembly, or supporting an employee to leave early to coach a sports team that you can consider. If a person is a good fit both professionally and personality wise and a valuable team member – it makes sense to support them to achieve balance. A great employee is worth it!
Value your employees + support them with life balance plus live your business values will create great, loyal, high value, happy employees which can only be good for your business.
