WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Earlier this year, President and CEO, Maria Melfa announced to TTA employees that she implemented five ‘Fun Days’ per calendar year. Maria implemented these to help further enhance the positive cultural environment that already exists at TTA. This is in addition to the vacation time that TTA employees enjoy, and further enhances the company’s benefits package.
The way that Fun Days work is that each employee is given five Fun Days at the beginning of each year. Fun Days do not need to be scheduled ahead of time. This allows employees to take days to have fun with family, friends, or take a little time to themselves.
Maria Melfa was inspired to come up with this concept so that employees can take the day off without feeling guilty. We all have that pressure and stress of balancing personal and professional lives, and our CEO wanted for people to simply have a day for fun, making it a day when they could be spontaneous, and enjoy themselves.
The implementation of Fun Days has allowed TTA employees to participate in things like going to the beach, attending events, spending time with their kids on school vacation, and enjoying the beautiful weather.
In a corporate world where stress is high and digital devices have created non-stop connectedness further affecting people’s level of stress, disengaging on Fun Days is a huge benefit. TTA’s CEO Maria Melfa is passionate about creating a culture where employees are able to thrive both personally and professionally.
“We genuinely care about the well-being and overall happiness of our employees. By creating an environment where employees can flourish and succeed, we are better able to better serve our customers and help others,” said TTA’s CEO Maria Melfa.
