No matter how many articles encourage us to wake up at 5 am to get a head start on our day, many of our internal clocks are as unique as the individuals we work with on a near-daily basis. Some are morning people, some are night owls. The key to employee satisfaction and a work-life balanced company is to recognize everyone’s unique circadian rhythms and to go with their flow. Let your employees work when they work best, no matter the time of day, and watch their productivity skyrocket.
The U.S. is known for hamburgers, freedom, and limited vacation time. Few companies offer generous paid time off; for those that do, employees are so busy that they worry taking time off will put them behind, so they choose to keep working instead. By encouraging your employees to take time off when they need it, they’ll take their vacation and return refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle emails and projects with renewed vigor.
