Recovering Balance at Home and Work

Dear valued customer,

Four months ago today we each raised a glass and shouted “Happy New Year!” Little did we know what was to come.

This year has brought with it many challenges that none of us could have anticipated during that moment of celebration. Clearly some have been affected directly by COVID-19 in a heartbreaking battle of life and death. The rest of us face lesser challenges of uncertainty, fear, disruption of plans, and finding balance.

Balance in Life

Let’s start with the ever elusive “balanced diet.” Who would ever have imagined that eating out less could cause the number displayed on our digital scales to move in the wrong direction? Many of us are learning an important lesson that some of you have already figured out: deciding between eating out and eating at home is less important than balancing nutrition with exercise.

For some, the global crisis has led to a personal financial crisis, where expenses have grown out of balance with income. This challenge is real and widespread, but our hope is that it is also short-lived. A swift economic rebound can restore this balance, helping many households recover from having “too much month at the end of the money.”

And then there’s the disruption to our social balance. Extroverts with a large appetite for social engagement are understandably craving personal connection, but even the introverts among us are realizing their genuine need for human interaction that cannot be satisfied by pets.

Balance at Work

Remember attempting to strike the right balance between working in the office and working from home? Better yet, remember calculating your eligible “paid time off” while planning your long overdue vacation? Surely the second half of 2020 will witness an imbalance of vacations due to our inability to travel during the first half of the year.

The proverbial difficulty of balancing time at work versus time with family still exists, but now the struggle takes place between two rooms in the same residence rather than between one’s work address and one’s home address.

For some, the reduced volume of business is out of balance with the size of your workforce, and you’re having to make difficult decisions as a result. Others of you are having the opposite problem and you’re rapidly hiring to meet the increased demands. Delicately balancing business risks against anticipated market stability or growth is especially challenging during an unprecedented event like the one playing out right now.

In view of the complex and multifaceted imbalances you might be facing today, OneSource Virtual wants you to know that we’re here for you.

And in many cases, we can help.
