The Management team at MobileXpense has decided to give all employees a day of paid leave to encourage self-care. Starting this year, June 21st will be MobileXpense’s employee well-being day.
The last 16 months have been challenging for us all. As the intensity of work has increased, so has our teams' dedication and their willingness to contribute. But of course, the difficult circumstances of these past few months have left their mark on all our mental and physical well-being.
As an organisation, MobileXpense wishes to contribute to every employee’s well-being in a tangible way. We want to ensure that each person has the opportunity to take a breath and recharge their batteries, without having to worry about work.
Our teams are passionate and dedicated to doing what’s best for our customers. This passion and dedication have resulted in people tackling more intense challenges than ever before, while balancing an ever-growing list of priorities in an unusual time. Many people may feel that there is never a good moment to take a day off for self-care. But we recognise that to do their best for our customers, our employees first need to do what’s best for themselves.
To strengthen our well-being initiatives, we are drafting a Well-being Policy. We have also have made available a library of resources to help employees unplug and find help when needed.
Of course, we are aware that recharging takes more than one day. Which is why we encourage employees to make their physical and mental well-being a priority by ingraining it into our company culture, because #WeCare.
This day is simply a step in what we believe to be the right direction. And from what our colleagues have shared for #MobileXpenseWellBeingDay and #MobileXpenseDoYouDay, it seems that the message of self-care has been well received!
We hope that wherever you are, you are able to take the time to practice self-care. Whether that means getting a massage or spending a day at the spa, or maybe traveling for the first time in 16 months. Whatever self-care means to you.
