All Work and No Play Makes for a Lot of Work

Anyone involved in the FinTech space knows that the technology landscape is changing quickly, just as the financial services industry and regulatory environment continue to evolve at a healthy pace. We are all connected 24/7 and there are not enough hours in the day to plan and execute on everything we want to do in the workplace.

That said, I’m occasionally reminded of the importance of maintaining a balance between work and play, seriousness and frivolity. There’s an increasing body of evidence that suggests sleep, play and even daydreaming are vital to our success at work. At InvestorCOM, the work is very important to us, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We started running a monthly contest this year to remind ourselves and our customers that work can be fun too. We’ve given away iPads, bestseller novels, breakfast for your office and this month we’re offering a pair of tickets to the PanAm Games in Toronto. Register on our site at each month to join in the fun.

And if you’re feeling like a hamster on a treadmill these days, don’t forget to step off the treadmill from time to time – or go get a hamster (they’re a lot of fun).
