More than just an employee survey
TINYpulse discovers how your employees are feeling, and performing
The TINYawards are back for 2020! I mean, c’mon, 2020 was that year. Organizations around the globe have been put through the wringer. A pandemic, ongoing social justice movements, and a divided election have tested the resiliency of companies and their employees.
As a leader, it’s important that you find ways to provide employees with a healthy work-life balance while also ensuring that the company is performing well and meeting goals. In striving to help employees achieve work-life balance, you must look to strike your own sense of balance between the company’s bottom line and employee morale.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently gave a fascinating interview to fellow CEO Mathias Döpfner, the CEO of publisher Axel Springer. There’s a lot of interesting revelations in the conversation: Bezos’ tendency to butcher quotes, his approach to criticism, his vision to “move all heavy industry off of Earth” (he’s really into space travel). I recommend reading the transcript. Here’s the quote that stuck out to me: “I get asked about work-life balance all the time. And my view is, that's a debilitating phrase because it implies there's a strict trade-off. And the reality is, if I am happy at home, I come into the office with tremendous energy. And if I am happy at work, I come home with tremendous energy. It actually is a circle; it's not a balance.”
