Work-life balance has been the hot topic of many online articles and face-to-face discussions. Some might say that it doesn’t exist, while others argue that it is the only thing that keeps one sane.
But whichever side of the unending debate you’re on, you cannot deny that your professional life and your personal life will inevitably collide. You might have to take some days off work to attend to personal matters, for instance. Alternatively, you might have to sacrifice a night out to meet some deadlines.
And whatever your definition of work-life balance is, we want to remind you that you must draw the line somewhere. If not for yourself, find the balance so as not to compromise the quality of your work and, more importantly, of your life. To do this, get yourself an employer that understands the importance of both professional and personal life and that supports you in both aspects.
Career Development Brings a Sense of Fulfillment
Ask people what motivates them to work and they’ll give different answers. Some work just to make ends meet, while others work to live comfortably and experience the good things in life. People with a competitive streak might say that they work to break their own limitations and see how far they can go.
Regardless of what motivates people to work, however, everyone agrees that career development brings a sense of fulfillment. It comes with a raise, maybe a little bit of praise, and the knowledge that you’re better today than you were yesterday.
Employers that care about professional growth and career development will motivate you to do your best at work. They will help you realize that you are capable of more things that you initially thought. They will also disregard the so-called glass ceiling and give you the recognition you deserve.
But of course, do not depend solely on your work life for a sense of fulfillment — spending every waking minute in the office might increase your productivity, but it might also decrease your quality of life.
Make Some Time for Yourself, Too
A good employer recognizes your efforts, but a great employer is one that acknowledges the importance of personal development. As such, stay with a company that understands the importance of taking time off work to focus on recharging yourself — and one that actually gives you time for yourself, at that.
Stay with a company that spices things up with companywide activities (e.g. movie nights, karaoke nights) and social clubs (e.g. photography, mountaineering). Such a company wants you to take part in refreshing activities that make you happy and motivate you to do your best in anything you pursue.
Moreover, stay with a company that respects your personal life and supports your passion projects. – because it understands that personal development is vital to your overall progression and productivity.
