Attention to “work-life balance” sets 3Degrees apart as an employer
3Degrees announced today that it was named a 2016 San Francisco Bay Area Best and Brightest Company. Based on employee assessment, the award highlighted leadership’s attention to “work-life balance” as a point of differentiation.
“Employees are happier and more productive when they’ve taken time away from the office to decompress,” said CEO Steve McDougal. “Fostering work-life balance is important to their health and happiness, and thus our business.”
3Degrees is known for creative human resource practices. As a global organization with a large part-time and seasonal workforce the company has a long history of empowering mobile workers and offering flexible hours. After certifying as a Benefit Corporation in 2012 the company added paid volunteer hours and an innovative “Flex-PTO” plan that uses the honor system to manage paid time off.
“Providing a variety of options to the differing job types and needs of employees is critical to achieving the goals of the organization as a whole,” continued McDougal. “The annual Best and Brightest survey provides valuable benchmarking data that we can use to set us apart from other employers.”
