This week you will learn about corporate environments. This is a concept that is important as it will give you the opportunity to further learn about the development of a productive work environment. Furthermore, you will learn about the evolution of the workplace over time.
Consider your current workplace. Do you enjoy going to work? Do you roll over in bed dreading the day? Hopefully, you are one that can say you enjoy going to work each day. If you do, that means your corporate environment is one that has been set up for your success. Unfortunately, there are many that are not quite meeting the standards of what employeeâ€™s look for today.
The setting in which one works is important. Employee health, comfort, and well-being should be considered. Do you feel you have a comfortable work-life balance? As time has changed, so has the way an employee looks at the workplace in terms of comfort. This is also true for the employer. Consider the benefits that are offered to you.
Netflix offers one paid year of maternity and paternity leave to new parents. They also allow parents to return part-time or full-time and take leave as needed throughout the year. Burton employees receive season ski passes and â€œsnow daysâ€ to hit the slopes after a big snowfall. Airbnb offers a $2,000 yearly travel stipend (Warren, 2018).
