Parenthood is not exactly a modern phenomenon, yet some employers still treat maternity in a prehistoric way. At FYXER, we see things for how they are and have acted accordingly. As a 98% female company, providing flexibility and support to our employees when they choose to expand their families is something we pride ourselves on.

It’s the same story for millions of people all over the world: get to work before sunrise, spend the day in an artificially-lit room and arrive home after sunset. But, is this relentless pursuit of the corporate dream really a good design for a life well-lived?

If I’m honest, protecting the environment and leading a healthier lifestyle are not the top two reasons I love working for FYXER (the extra two hours I get back in the morning and the option to keep my jimjams on all day win those prizes).

What would your perfect working week look like? Meetings exclusively with potential new clients? No unnecessary sales calls? Two hours free each day when you’re at your most productive? Perhaps, you’d like some time off to exercise in the afternoon or work one day out of the office. Have no external breakfasts and a maximum of two client lunches. In by 8 a.m. every morning, back by 8 p.m. every evening.

Approaching the end of 2017, I knew it would soon be time to leave my 11-month-old daughter at nursery and head back into the ‘professional world’. No more days at the park, baby sensory classes, catching up with other baby mamas for lunch, or just having cuddles with my tiny pal on the sofa. However, I also knew I wasn’t ready to leave her and more importantly, she wasn’t ready either.

WorkLife with Adam Grant is one of my favourite podcasts. Each episode takes a look at an unconventional workplace, such as the International Space Station or the set of a TV show, and explores the different methods and techniques used to make that workplace thrive.
