@NewsCat - I’m so glad you brought this up. Above and beyond the multitude of programs that companies are offering, I find that the biggest contribution an organization can make is a culture of health and wellness. At Culture Amp, I am constantly reminded that it is okay to take time for myself. I never question whether I can take some time for myself, especially when days get tough or I’m feeling run down.
A great example of this is days when we host our Geekups. These events usually occur after work hours, which means you’re putting in your typical 8 hour day, followed by a long evening of networking and education. As awesome as they are, they can be exhausting! It never ceases to amaze me that our teams constantly encourage each other to take the AM or the next day off in order to recharge. It really drives home the fact that we value each other’s health and wellness first.
