Kickoff to Summer: Work Hard, Play Hard, Choose your Own Adventure, and Stay Connected
From beach to bonfire, let your playground double as your work space this summer – no matter where the sunshine takes you!
Today’s the official start to summer. It’s that time of year: those of us stuck in the office may plead guilty to frequent daydreams, creeping in as the sun shines brightly through our windows, beckoning us to come out and play.
With the change in temperature come changes in work schedules. As kids bust out of their classrooms and summer vacations come into view, maintaining the balance between work and real life can be especially challenging.
Who says you can’t have it all – over the summer and all-year round? Work shouldn’t require you to choose between your life and your job: in reality, the two should complement each other, fueling your passions at the office and outside of it while motivating you to be productive, focused, and creative at work so that you can enjoy all that summer has in store.
The modern workforce stretches us to do more and be more ‘round the clock. Workers should be rewarded with the flexibility to take advantage of sunny days, lemonade stands, and the rise and fall of the tide, by working whenever, wherever they get things done. And let’s face it, we all want to be trusted to meet deadlines while also making happy hour.
Like a popsicle forgotten in the hot sun, schedules can get sticky. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right technology, you can say “yes” to more and figure out the details later, knowing that you’re able to resume where you left off on that work project no matter where you log in. When the beach calls this summer, answer it. And rest assured you’ll be able to stay connected with your teams regardless of where your toes may be.
We’re getting ready to take on the clam bakes full force in our Boston office and jet off to Cape Cod to enjoy some salt water and sand. While we’re moving and grooving at work, we’re equally looking forward to some R&R. That’s something we believe in – greater control over your time while working, so that you can make the most of the time that you’re not.
So let’s dust off the golf clubs and glob on the sunscreen: we’re ready for you, summer of 2016!
