People work for a living, we are not living to work.
As an employee as well as the management, we must acknowledge that time for yourself is not an award for a hard work you are doing in your life. It is a NECESSITY.
Each person needs to have a WORK LIFE BALANCE to always keep herself/himself positive and productive.
Factors to consider keeping a work life balance environment in a company.
1. Environment – Office is a workplace where you need to do and finish all your tasks given to you at a specific time, all employees are asked to be more professional when it comes to work but you must consider that they are still human that sometimes needs breather. Let them talk a little while in the office having coffee break and on their lunch breaks. Make them feel they are being taken cared of not robots who will always just focus on tasks. This has a huge effect on their productivity as stress is one major cause of being not productive.
2. Company Activities – This will help your employees get along with each other and feel that people in the office are not just colleagues, but they could be FRIENDS too. Having friends at work will help to add motivation for your employees to go to at work with positive mind and good heart. This doesn’t require to be weekly or monthly, if the company create such this kind of program you are in good hands.
3. Compensation and benefits – these are the 2 greatest component you need to consider seeing if you will be able to exercise a work life balance in a company. You must consider all your needs and check the compensation, your location going to your office, the benefits you’ll get and of course if the company will meet your needs too.
4. Management – you must know how the management deal with their employees, and you must be sensitive enough to see if you can work well with the other employee and management team. There are different kind of people, you need to know who you can work with and who you cannot.
To save your time and effort in looking for a stable job, these are the factors you must check first.
