Six ways you can ace work-life balance at CommBank
Six ways you can ace work-life balance at CommBank. Here’s some of the options you can think about when you work with CommBank.
Embrace hybrid working
Choose where you work and vary your location. Hybrid working combines working at any of our CommBank locations with working remotely to give you more of that work-life balance. A morning working from the beach and the afternoon working from home? Here you can
Adjust your working patterns
Shift your start and finishing times. Consider building a micro break into your day for exercise, side hustles, and hobbies for your wellbeing. If you’re considering significant changes to your work patterns like a compressed schedule (e.g. a 9 day fortnight), have a chat with your manager to see how we can support you.
Consider part time or job share
Part time or job share options can give you more flexibility for your life outside of work. A job share arrangement allows you to divide your job between you and another colleague, and work a few days a week to cover a full-time role. Returning from parental leave or transitioning to retirement? This flex option would suit you.
Purchase additional annual leave
Exactly as it’s described, you can buy more time to do what you choose. If you’re a permanent employee at the Group you can look to purchase up to 4 additional weeks of leave per year. Hello road trip around Australia?
Take a career break
Ever considered an extended non-paid period to travel, study or spend more time with your family? This could be a creative and fulfilling alternative to leaving CommBank for a period of time (and then returning because you miss it so much!).
Do more with your ‘Out of Office’ (OOO)
The power of putting on an out of office is magical. They are tools to communicate boundaries e.g. work hours, holidays, home schooling, study leave and more. Though most importantly they help build meaningful connections. People will get your OOO no matter what, so why not add some honest flair. Google creative OOO for some inspo!
Navigating a way that works for you doesn’t have to be rocket science (unless you’re indeed a rocket scientist). Even if a job advertisement doesn’t specify these options, we always encourage you to ask about the options available.
