For many employees, work can often spill over into their personal lives. Some people check and answer emails over the weekend, or put in extra hours for extra pay. Many employees are even praised for taking time to complete work-related tasks during their off-time!

The reality is that work does take up a large part of our lives, sometimes at the expense of our personal time.

But people aren’t just employees. They’re mothers, fathers, friends, spouses – and their lives shouldn’t have to revolve around just their jobs.

Work flexibility is essential in maintaining physical, mental, and emotional health, avoiding burnout, and keeping employees happy. Why build a life around work when you can build work around your life?

That’s exactly what we do at Chronos.

We’ve asked our team to share what a typical workday looks like for them. Take a peek into how Chronosians balance work and play:

Weekends

Mira Lastari (Marketing Manager) and Sam Catbagan (Content Writer) also enjoy a flexible work arrangement that allows them to work on their own time while giving them the space to savor precious moments of being with their loved ones daily.

Since I’m in a different time zone than the rest of my team, I work early so I can spend more time with them. By starting my day early, I wrap up work by noon. That allows me plenty of time to do personal activities during the day: be a housewife, pick up my son from school and also have some quality alone time. Plus with the remote setting, I get to enjoy the freedom to work from anywhere!

Mira Lastari - Marketing Manger

Flexibility is the biggest deal-sealer for me. The ability to seamlessly allocate time for work and housework and do each during the most convenient timeframes is what helped me find the work-life balance I needed.

Sam Catbagan - Content Writer

At Chronos, we understand how important flexibility is. Our remote setup allows you to work while you enjoy and participate in the more important things in life, so you can feel inspired by your career – not burdened by to-do lists.

You won’t find yourself sitting in front of your computer for 8 hours a day. Take breaks, go outside, attend to your needs and interests – the work will still be there when you’re ready again.

And if you’ve had trouble finding inspiration at work, you can partake in virtual watercooler fun so you can enjoy a little bit of downtime as you hustle.

Discover work flexibility like you’ve never experienced elsewhere.

We’re always on the lookout for inquisitive, driven, and fun-loving talents. Join our growing team of hardworking, talented individuals and experience work-life balance like never before!
