You can learn a lot about what makes employees want to stay when you listen to your team. And when your team has a lot of working parents on it, like ours, the feedback is essential to a healthy, happy and more productive workplace. This is never more evident than now, when the days are longer and warmer, and the risks for Summer Slump Syndrome can be found in all corners of the country.
Summertime and the pursuit of a life-work balance
We’ve been lucky to have team members like HR Manager Dana Huber, PHR, SHRM-CP to share their insights about what working parents and family caregivers value in their organizations. She and her colleagues here at myHR Partner® have helped us shape work schedules in a way that keeps our team productive and happy, which translates to great service for our clients, even in the lazy hazy days of summer.
“With school ending and summer camp beginning, I appreciate the flexibility that myHR Partner offers me to work both from home and from the office throughout the course of the day. My daughter does All-Star cheerleading, and I am able to balance her travel schedule with my desire to be a working professional. I also love to take advantage of the summer weather by working in the sunshine on my patio – the best of both worlds.”
