Work-Life Balance Award.

So I’m at a blogging workshop (for teachers) now and we’ve been told to practice blogging. One of the blogging tasks is to invent an award and elaborate on some criteria for winning that award. This is my imagined award.


This award encourages employees to adopt best practices at work in order to achieve a work-life balance. The criteria for this award are as follows:

  1. 8-8-8
    Employee actively makes spending an equal amount of time at work, engaging in leisure and getting sufficient rest (i.e. 8 hours each, hence 8-8-8) one of their Key Performance Indicators.
  2. Fastest Finger First.
    Employee is consistently one of the first to ‘clock out’ from work after the stipulated working time.
  3. 80-20 Rules!
    Employee consistently innovates new ways to achieve the greatest output with the least amount of effort.
