As a recruitment specialist at KnownFour, I have been able to fully realise the power of work/life balance, thanks to their ethos of remote and flexible working.

Unlike other businesses that offer their staff the chance to work from home once or twice a week, the team at KnownFour has built the foundations of the business with work/life balance at its very core so working from home is the rule, not just the exception.

But what does that mean for me? As well as managing the Global Resource and Information Division (GRID) at KnownFour I’m also a passionate amateur photographer. I purchased my first DSLR camera last November and have been on a mission to learn all that I can about my new toy and editing software ever since.

In fact, if it wasn’t for the flexibility provided by KnownFour then one of my photographs would never have caught the eye of Dell India and been re-tweeted to their 47,300 followers. To say I was excited by their recognition would be the understatement of the century!

Being able to work from a location of my choice at a time that suits me, my family and my lifestyle have enabled me to invest more time in my passion for photography. I have time to meet with other photographers, learn from them, collaborate with them and explore new techniques in taking photos.

KnownFour thrives on the idea of enabling employees to maintain a healthy, happy life by providing a collaborative yet virtual workplace.

As the least experienced person in the company, it is great to have a team that has so much experience that I truly look forward to going to work and connecting with colleagues as there’s always something new to learn.

I see myself as a bit of a technology nut, something which is also satisfied working withKnownFour. To unify so many individuals in different parts of the world you need to have solutions to have a collaborative team. And I help provide those solutions.

If I didn’t work for such a collaborative, forward-thinking employer then I wouldn’t be able to realise my full potential as a photographer and wouldn’t have access to the opportunities I have had to learn and experience new things.

When you work more than 9-5, commute into work, skip your lunch break and read emails at home in the evening or weekend you forget to live, you simply exist. But when the boundaries are changed and you set your own goals, all of a sudden life becomes worth living.

So in a nutshell, be good at more than just a thing and truly have time to enjoy it and spend time with people who matter.
