A Family Affair – The Importance of Family at Taylor’s
Friday, 26 November 2021
A happy family is but an earlier heaven and as a family-owned and run business, we understand the importance of a strong and nurtured family unit. At Taylor’s, we endeavour to support of staff in any way we can so that they do not have to sacrifice precious family time for work.
We do this by supporting a flexible working environment which allows our working parents to attend family functions and care for sick kids without the stress of work impeding on their minds. Our beautiful mothers have enjoyed athletics carnivals with their kids and attended recitals and presentations, all while being able to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
What’s more, we cherish our annual family picnic which we hold every year as the weather warms up and the flower festival is in full swing. This year we enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in the sun, surrounded by flowers, family and good company. It is one of our greatest pride and joys that our workers at Taylor’s feel part of a strong and supportive working environment. We believe that it when our best work is done! Gone are the days when high-stress rigid working environments garnered successful results!
It has been proven by a number of statistics, time and time again, those supportive and flexible working environments which acknowledge the benefits of a solid work-life balance increase performance by a significant margin.
The benefits to this family-friendly work model are amazing:
- Reduced absenteeism
- Increased productivity
- Retaining skilled staff and reduced training costs
- Reduced staff turnover
- Attracting new employees
- Being recognised as an employer of choice
- Increased morale and job satisfaction
We have fine-tuned our business model at Taylor's to make sure that everyone is getting the best out of our operation because we do not believe you have to sacrifice family time for hard work or results. Little adjustments to our operation and small systems of support allow us to increase our company’s performance while keeping our amazing staff well looked after. Work smarter, not harder!
