Does it surprise you that the average U.S. employee spends more than half of their waking hours on the job1? With the amount of time we spend at work, it’s inevitably going to make an impact on our quality of life.
Knowing that being satisfied with your job leads to increased performance, engagement and commitment, Sodexo creates strategies around supporting and encouraging the well-being of employees. Even the smallest things can make a big impact. Did you know the optimal temperature in an office environment reduces errors by 44%2? Good to know!
In the recently released 2015 Workplace Trends Report, we've identified six dimensions of Quality of Life where we can make a real and measurable impact in the lives of our employees.
|Six Dimensions of Quality of Life|
I've personally been impacted by all six of these dimensions during my career at Sodexo, including training and networking opportunities, special recognition from co-workers, and a virtual work space. Even in a remote environment, my department’s commitment to each of these is evident. We incorporate time to stretch into our weekly team meetings, recognize special events and successes, and have the tools to operate efficiently.
The point is, not only has Sodexo identified these dimensions of quality of life, they have created a culture of success that is driven by these factors.
