Work-life balance is essential for employee wellbeing, and Lipton is on a bit of a mission to promote happiness in the office. Flexible working can be anything from choosing when to take your tea break in the morning to choosing where and how to work.

Work is no longer a one-size-fits-all model, and Lipton for one, would like to celebrate this movement towards personal wellbeing. People who have control over their work schedule have better mental health, better blood pressure, better sleep and healthy habits.

Finding happiness in variety

At Lipton, we’re all about variety. We know that different people have different tastes and enjoy different things during different moods. Whether it’s black tea, green tea or fruit tea, flexible working celebrates variety in the same way. Simple.

For starters, flexible working can benefit both employees and employers. A study from The University of Miami found that employees from organisations offering flexible working hours were more committed and had higher job satisfaction than those from organisations following the traditional 9 to 5 structure.

A FlexJobs Report showed that 60% of millennials think they would be more productive at home versus in an office. Further, 82% of respondents say they would be more loyal to their employers if they had flexible work options.

Lipton knows that some workers are unable to work remotely due to practical reasons, in which spontaneous tea breaks, informal clothing and music might be the more flexible approach. Small changes to your habits can make a big difference to your work-life balance.
