- Zoo Media, network that owns the digital agency
FoxyMoronwith 6 other agencies, gave its employees an off for six days!
- It was an effort to give its employees a break from relentless hard work and to spend some time with their family.
The network implemented the Wellness Break from 12th August to 14th August. The break was strategically combined with Janmashtami (being a bank holiday) on 11th August, effectively giving all the employees a 6-day break when combined with the weekend.
Speaking about the thought behind the initiative
“The response to the Wellness Break has been resoundingly positive throughout the organisation. We informed our clients a month in advance and we’re grateful that they were extremely understanding of the same and yes the week leading up to the break was hectic, the hustle was worth it. It’s been a few days since we’ve resumed work and the mood is definitely upbeat,” said
Mangala Bhattacharjee, an Account Director at FoxyMoron, sharing her experience about the break said, “The Wellness Break was truly a blessing. It allowed me to detach from my phone completely and reconnect with my 3 yr old. We painted, we made origami, we spent every waking minute together. It was wonderful. This break was really welcome. The lockdown has been a difficult experience across industries. Granting a Wellness Break, is a good initiative and it would be great to see this implemented by many more companies.”
