CEO 101

How do you approach the issue of employees’ external appointments and activities?

REPLY FROM Mr Kevin White, General Manager for Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Products, Asia Pacific

At Tyco, we encourage good work-life balance and place a keen interest in our employees’ personal goals and pursuits. Demands at work can lead to spending an unhealthy amount of time at the office, away from friends and family, which is not good in the long run. It is important to be effective at work, so that you can spend more time with others for the things you enjoy doing together. Having a healthy personal life and fun interests clears your mind, and also aids in managing anxiety and stress — common factors that we see affecting employee performance and satisfaction.
