Work life balance is an unknown concept in your life? Have you ever doubted that it is even possible? Well, we have breaking news for you!
Not only work life balance is possible, but also is extremely important for your mental and physical health. Work life balance is definitely the secret ingredient to prevent stress and burnout. How to do it? We can show you the amazing programs that help Teleperformance Portugal’s employees to find their balance. And why is this so important? Recent studies show that companies are now facing an employee burnout crisis. More and more, work life balance seems like an impossible feat. Technology makes us accessible and connected 24 hours a day and physically leaving the office doesn’t necessarily mean that the work is over. A recent Gallup study of 7,500 full-time employees found that 23 percent of the surveyed reported feeling burned out at work very often or always. So, it becomes urgent for companies to find their own path when it comes to work life balance policies.
At Teleperformance Portugal, soon we understood that our most important asset is our employees. We are a people’s company and one of our company’s priority is the wellbeing of its team, made of more than 10.000 people form 86 nationalities. And with work life balance in mind, TP Club was created. What is it? It is a Club which the main purpose is to provide free events and activities to our company’s employees, family and friends.
TP club has an exclusive team fully dedicated in the organization of several events, such as sports activities, amazing parties, social events where you can bring your family and friends as well as a variety of workshops to try something new! Every weekend, one can choose if we prefer, for instance, to go to a soft trekking or learn how to surf. This is one of Teleperformance Portugal’s secrets and one of the reasons why we were already awarded for the 9th time as a Great Place to Work.
If the Managers in your company still don’t think that promoting a work life balance environment will benefit not only their team but, ultimately, improve the final work, you can easily show them some advantages:
- A happier, less stressed and more engaged team;
- Greater employee loyalty, commitment and motivation;
- Fewer cases of sickness and absenteeism;
- Improvements in employee mental health and wellbeing;
- Increased productivity.
