I recently read the World Happiness Report (who knew?) and found some interesting facts and data. It seems that many of the top counties all consider the following to be important factors: caring, freedom, honesty, generosity, health, etc. When thinking of my days in an office environment, all these ring true for my prior work life and now home life alike.
As the study was comprehensive with 150 countries participating, there seemed to be a common thread for those that did weigh in. The study shows that white collar workers fared better than blue collar workers based on the ratings of input throughout the study. The feeling is that better pay provided for a more positive and enriching work life.
The theory of a more balanced work-life environment rang true throughout the study as every employee works through his/her demands while weighing the impact of their family life. One detail that was of interest noted that with the employee being able to plan out their day lead to a more rewarding work experience.
The recent trend seems to be engaging more with employees to allow for greater flexibility and more welcoming work spaces lately. Google is planning a new facility in London which is rumored to have a running track, swimming pools, massage rooms, and room for 686 bikes! It will a new workplace to 7000 employees. As the saying goes “times are a changin’!” with companies adding more features to enhance the the work environment.
Massage Kneads, my on-site chair massage company based in MD, received this kind review late last week. Another client was pleased with our on-site chair massage services.
5 stars! for my chair massage
“I had the 10 minute massage for my neck and shoulders 01JUN2017. She was very kind, listened to my requests and professional. She was on time and my neck felt much better afterwards. I would recommend it to others. “
With reviews like this one, I will continue to work all summer long side by side with others that are doing the same!
