Even though my job can be very stressful I’m grateful to have an awesome boss who always puts his employees first and strives to create an environment we are happy to work in.
The top of our office philosophy is ‘Family First’, meaning never worry about missing work to deal with family emergencies or even non-emergencies.
He’s incredibly generous and may have eternal patience because being the only man in an office full of opinionated, often loud women can be a bit much at times but he puts up with our antics, never failing to let us know we’re appreciated.
I’ve spent a lot of time working for people who, while not intentionally bad bosses, had management styles that left much to be desired.
It is a relief to know that when the stress in the rest of my life is out of control, my employment isn’t something I have to worry about (I do, but that is because I’m a natural worrier 🤷♀️). I find financial security and an enjoyable work environment a stress reliever, if you don’t have that, it may be time to re-evaluate.
