The marketing industry has a reputation for being fast-paced, with long days, lots of overtime, and eating lunch at your desk while trying to meet a project deadline.
While the fast-paced part is true, at TDG Marketing, one of our core values is having a healthy work/life balance so that all our team members can thrive and feel good about the work they are doing. Tired and burned-out team members don’t put out their best work…and in an industry as creatively driven as ours, that’s just not going to work.
Even more importantly, we are a people-first company. We truly care about every member of our team. That’s why fostering a healthy work/life balance matters to us – from the top down.
It’s well established that a strong work/life balance leads to healthier employees, both physically and mentally. We expect our team to be present, focused, and enthusiastic about their work during work hours, but we have equally strong expectations that they leave work behind when the workday is done. It all comes down to being present in each part of your life. We aren’t saying we are perfect at it, but we are working hard to find the balance.
