Work-Life Balance...Or Is It Just Life?

A big buzz phrase around the business world is work-life balance. Experts talk about how important it is to make sure you have a healthy balance between your job and your personal life. That is certainly one way to look at it, and for some, that might be the best way to look at it for themselves. At Pro Athlete, we have a different approach to this.

 We believe that if you create an amazing culture and an amazing place to go to work every day, then there is no work-life balance, it’s just life! At Pro Athlete, that experience doesn’t stop with you; it extends to your family and friends. We want them to be part of what we call the “Good Life” around here. Work hard, play hard, get results, and have fun at the office and at home. It’s the way we do business!

 Who made the rule that so many people seem to follow that says you should dread going into work the next day? If we knew who it was, we wouldn't be his or her biggest fan!  We have all made that moaning and groaning sound when our alarm clock goes off in the morning knowing you have to go into a job that maybe you aren’t passionate about. Because of that dreaded feeling and many other reasons, we have dedicated ourselves to try and never have anyone associated with our business feel that way again.  

Most of our employees look forward to coming into work because they have a place they can come hang out with friends, be challenged, be cared for, and accomplish goals together. To us, no balance is needed if you build it the right way. Why not make it fun and already balanced for everyone? After all, “if you build it they will come.”
