According to the World Health Organization, “mental health is a state of well-being in which individuals realize their own abilities, can cope with the normal stress of life, can work productively, and are able to make a contribution to their community.”
The pandemic has been a powerful and swift disruption in both our professional and personal lives. To this day, high rates of burnout and declining mental health impacts millions of Americans.
“The past 18 months have been grueling on our entire staff. In addition to the pressure of the pandemic shutdown, the hard work we have been doing on releasing a new Journey Intelligence product and doing so through political and social turmoil has left many of us exhausted,” said Mike Torto, Executive Chairman of BryterCX.
It is important to acknowledge the state of today’s professional landscape. To listen to our employees, identify what are in fact life’s friction points, and create a safe and thriving environment.
“It’s important for companies to honor the way employees bring their whole selves to work. We‘re giving employees a four-day work week until October so we can all be at our best, recharged for the great work we are going to accomplish together this year.”
The concept of a four-day work week is not new, and many organizations have already adopted this system for the summer, with the majority reporting exceptional results in their employee’s well-being. Many exciting things are in the works at BryterCX, and we acknowledge that the best possible results will come only when we support our employees.
Here’s to happy Fridays off.
We are offering all employees a four-day work week until October.
