Life’s a balancing act
“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls – family, family, health, friends, integrity – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” ~ Gary Keller
In today’s society – and at National Grid – we’re all pulled in a lot of directions, with lots of activities competing for our time. On the job, we want to deliver the highest quality work and still be the best friends, spouses, partners and parents outside of work. It’s hard to find balance!
The Work and Life Matters employee resource group (ERG) is dedicated to helping employees achieve a healthy work/life balance. With 180 members and growing, the group offers:
- ‘Thoughts of the month’ employee emails with tips, ideas and/or encouraging and inspiring notes
- A newly launched quarterly newsletter with more tips, stories from your colleagues and links to helpful resources
- Educational events across our US service area, some with fellow ERGs
Most of all, this newest of our ERGs is looking for YOUR ideas and input … and would like to share work/life matter tips and ideas with YOU. Want to find out more or join? Contact the group at Workandlifematters@nationalgrid.com
