We practice what we preach – in addition to our pods and booths, we have our own innovative and unique tools to ensure a happy workplace. At Framery we constantly measure, optimize and change our tools and the way we work to generate more happiness. However, even for a workplace pioneer like Framery, the global pandemic was a true test. It is already known that the negative effects on well-being and mental health will be long-lasting, even as the pandemic subsides. At Framery, we are doing anything and everything we can to combat workplace burnout – take a look at our methods and feel free to bring them in your own workplace!
Prioritize Wellness and Transparency
Prioritizing wellness in the workplace is an important step toward improving well-being worldwide. Head of People & Culture at Framery, Anni Hallilla believes “when we talk about resilience, energy, well-being and/or mental health, the most important thing is maintaining sincerity and transparency in the conversation. When we find the courage to talk honestly, even about the harder subjects, we have the key component to the solution. That key is to create a culture where everyone has the feeling that it’s not only okay but highly recommended, to talk about one’s well-being with your team leaders and within your team.”
“It’s not only okay but highly recommended, to talk about one’s well-being.”
This is exactly why Framery makes the discussion of wellness-related policies part of everyday work life and not just on special occasions, days, or months out of the year. Well-being is a priority every single day employees come to the office and it’s a responsibility that Framery is proud to pursue. We walk the talk when saying we are serious about happiness.
Framery is always exploring new ways to foster a positive and healthy work environment for both employees and clients. Founder and CEO Samu Hällfors says “I find that, with my own company, it’s all about exploring the balance between a supportive workplace environment and a healthy, happy company culture. I think these things work toward identifying how to meet the needs of employees so that they can be themselves and reach their highest potential.”
Easily accessible Psychologist Services
Framery also offers occupational health care for its employees and access to a dedicated occupational health psychologist and their array of specific services. At Framery, if anything is on your mind that you’d like to discuss with a trained professional, in addition to traditional contact channels (like phone, email, or in-person appointments) Framery has a dedicated Slack channel to make contact and next steps easy.
“We’re working closely with our occupational health partners to provide an optimal workplace experience for employees,” says the Head of People & Culture at Framery, Anni Hallila. “We provide professional guidance through our external partners and also offer workshops that focus on themes such as mental health to enhance individual well-being. We are constantly developing new programming that helps team members better understand their own health, both mental and physical, so that they can best take care of themselves.”
Throughout the pandemic, Framery has also offered international employees financial support for at-home ergonomics. Leadership strives to take care of all Framerians, no matter where they are located.
