Life Happens – Don’t Miss It Between 8 to 5

If you ask me what one of the best things about working at Geonetric is I won’t hesitate with my answer. Flexibility.

Flexibility in my work schedule and having the technology to work almost anywhere allows me to work from home if my daughter is sick or if I need to meet with the washing machine repairman. I don’t worry about missing a dentist appointment or a school concert.

And I am not alone. On any given day at Geonetric our employees are not only busy “Wow!”-ing our clients – but also attending conferences, doctor appointments, landscaping meetings, hair-cuts, and chiropractor visits.

What?! These people are away from work during the work day?!

Yes, yes they are. Because we know life doesn’t stop when you reach the office. Life happens during all hours of the day and Geonetric believes that every moment should be celebrated and experienced even during the work day. At Geonetric, flexibility is an incredible benefit that we all value very highly and one none of us take for granted. Having flexibility in our work hours and environment only increases our desire and commitment to producing exceptional work and holding each other accountable.

Geonetric truly believes that infusing flexible workplace practices into our culture is important.  We are committed to helping our employees balance work life and personal life and we believe that our employees are more successful because they have flexibility during the day. We are so excited about being awarded the 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility because it give us a unique measure and view of the health of our culture through implementing non-monetary and non-traditional workplace practices.
