Safety And Health At Work Day

It’s the World Day for Safety and Health at work - and we’re thinking about the importance of creating workplaces that are safe, supportive, and stable.

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work started in 2003, and it aimed to help prevent accidents and diseases in work environments. In the last 20 years, well nearly, the world has changed a lot. With improvements in technologies and a few major world events (like the Covid-19 pandemic) the idea of the ‘normal’ workspace has adapted dramatically.

We are now living in a world where more people are working remotely or flexibly, reducing our time in offices and with colleagues. Nowadays safety and health at work has a completely different meaning. Ensuring your employees are healthy and happy means making them feel secure and safe within their team, it leads to greater productivity and ensures your best talent will remain with you for longer. 

Here are some of the ways Doji is fostering a healthy workplace for our employees and enabling them to create a better work-life balance:

  • Remote / flexible working: At Doji our staff are allowed to work from anywhere they choose - including our WeWork office in Sao Paulo. If our staff feel that going and working in the sun for an extended period would be good for their mental health, we fully support that.
  • Work-life balance: Everyone’s personal situation is completely different, some of our staff have children and others have slightly fluffier friends. Work is important, but it shouldn’t rule your lives - we support a healthy work-life balance by enabling our staff to head out for school runs or on the odd walk/run throughout the day.
  • Team building: As a fully remote team, we understand the importance of building fantastic relationships. Not all of that can be done through a screen, sometimes people need a chance to meet up. Every month we rent an office for our team days.
  • Support: We’re a fairly open team, we like to think of ourselves as a Doji family. If one of us has a problem and needs support, it’s our duty and responsibility to help. Working remotely can lead to feelings of isolation and we want to ensure our staff never feel unsupported.
