What drives you to do your best at work? At OpenBlend, we think that work/life balance is an outdated idea. It really takes a blend of elements from our professional and personal lives for us to feel fulfilled and have a sense of belonging at work.
Today, as many of us adjust to working remotely, our personal performance objectives may change, or they might become clearer than ever. Either way, understanding what motivates us – and addressing how we can prioritise those things – is vital for us to thrive from home.
A good starting point is to discover your own personal blend. What elements do you need at home and at work to feel fulfilled, happy and productive – and how far off are you from achieving them? Use our blend insight tool to find your perfect blend.
Here, Hamza Ali, First Line Support Engineer at OpenBlend, explains why making a sense of belonging at work is a key part of his blend:
Blend element: Sense of belonging at work
Why is a sense of belonging at work important to you?
“A sense of belonging at work is important to me as it makes me feel connected with my team and continuously engaged. It also showcases the community spirit we have here at OpenBlend.”
What impact does this have on your work and personal life?
“I feel like I have the support around me to reach my full potential and continuously bond with my team.”
Has this blend element changed for you since you started working remotely?
“I have always had this element as I feel it is very important to feel connected and have a strong connection with my team.”
How does this blend element tie into working from home?
“This Blend element ties into working from home as it motivates me, and I feel engaged. We are continuously communicating and staying connected through Microsoft Teams and Zoom.”
Getting an insight into your own unique blend is an important first step to getting a sense of belonging at work and at home – whatever the circumstances.
