WOW! I am passionate about this article! I absolutely attribute much of our success at The Riverbend Group to a culture that values flexibility. Giving your team the flexibility to live their life and pursue their interests outside of work is not only the right thing to do for them, but the right thing do to for your business. Happy, balanced, and appreciative team members increase in their gratitude for your company. Their loyalty and their commitment to help your company thrive increase simultaneously. Your people become so grateful for a place to work that not only encourages but celebrates their lives outside of work, then in return they work harder and smarter for you to ensure the company thrives — it becomes a virtuous circle. There is no doubt that workplace flexibly has directly led to our year-over-year success — a happy, passionate team directly impacts our quality output and client satisfaction.
