Finding Balance At Work

Sep 20, 2019

How we can help you establish a healthy work/life balance

With today’s fast-paced way of life, it’s no surprise that people are finding it increasingly difficult to master a complementary work/life balance, especially in the midst of a busy industry and looming to-do list. But studies have shown an imbalance between work and personal life can lead to decreased productivity in the workplace. This lack of balance is detrimental to workers and employers alike, keeping people from achieving optimal performance at work or at home.

More than just beneficial for mental health, a healthy work/life balance amid a stressful work environment should be encouraged, not only to prevent employee burnout but to increase productivity and efficiency.

According to the 2017 National Study of Employersfrom the Families and Work Institute, the growth of workplace flexibility has stabilized over the last four years, and common practices that promote work/life balance are growing. Trends like remote working have proven to help employees achieve greater output in the workplace.

At SWS, we work hard, and we produce wins. But that means we also make an effort to promote activities that foster a healthy work/life balance. To do this, we have created opportunities to work remotely or utilize flexible hours, held lunchtime yoga sessions, started a daily walking club and participated in community volunteer days.

When people are encouraged to take breaks like this, they return to work feeling refreshed, focused and ready to tackle that looming to-do list, which is especially critical in high-stress work environments.
