SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For many of today's employees in the U.S., the search for the ideal work-life balance is often a fruitless one: In May, Ernst & Young released a study that found 24 percent of U.S. employees say their work-life balance is getting more difficult to manage. But at Blue Global Media — an online marketing and lead generation company based in Scottsdale, Arizona — employees are getting closer to finding the optimal balance as the business makes the well-being of its staff members a top priority.
Blue Global Media operates a proprietary worldwide loan marketplace that matches borrowers and lenders based on their needs. Led by CEO and founder, Chris Kay, team members have the opportunity to collaborate and develop innovative lending solutions. Kay prides himself on the fact that while it operates as a small business with less than 50 employees, the company offers benefits that are in line with much larger employers. The nimbleness and entrepreneurial environment also allow for a non-traditional, employee-centric culture that offers greater work-life balance, Kay said.
"Our company is on the leading edge of creating a work environment and culture that is supportive of employees and cognizant of how important work-life balance is to them," Kay said. "The benefits we provide, including our forward-thinking work from home program, go a long way toward keeping our employees engaged, productive and happy. And when we have employees who feel fulfilled and in control of their time, it's good for business."
In early 2014, Blue Global Media, drawing from studies showing the positive outcomes of implementing a non-traditional work schedule, began allowing employees to work from home three days a week. Employees immediately felt empowered and liberated by their flexible schedules, which boosted morale and cemented the company as a leader in offering work-life balance to employees, Kay said.
"Establishing the work from home program showed our employees that we understand the demands on their time, at work and at home," Kay said. "And not only do we understand it, we want to help make achieving that balance a little easier, because ultimately, when you care about your people and recognize that the small benefits can make a big difference, you're defining your company's culture. In today's workplace, where only 13 percent of employees around the world are actively engaged at work, it's a critical issue."
