Customer Driven Leadership (CDL) has been the heart of our company culture since 1995. A key part of the CDL system is helping our team members with keeping a healthy work/life balance. Our company has tried to design our culture around a commonly used concept called the “Wheel of Life”. In this analogy, the wheel has six spokes. The spokes represent the goals a person is trying to achieve in various areas of their life. The most common spokes are: Family, Career, Social, Financial, Physical and Spiritual.
If these spokes are in balance, a person has a rounded “wheel” that can spin freely and handle the ups and down of the road of life. However, common sense would suggest that if the spokes are out of balance, then their wheel cannot spin without difficulty. This will affect productivity at work as well as issues at home. If a company could provide a work environment that helps associates round out their wheel, everyone wins. The person is happier at home, more fulfilled and much more productive at work. We have many programs at our office to help people round out their wheel.
