Working for a company that offers a healthy work-life balance makes for a fulfilling personal and professional experience. 

While employees at Colt Technology Services work hard to drive innovation, the company respects and promotes work-life balance. For example, Colt's Flexible First scheme encourages flexible and hybrid working, and enables employees to grow their interests outside the workplace. Launched in November 2022, Flexible First was designed with the help of colleagues through an extensive six-month Hybrid Pilot.

Colt continues to explore how its approach will evolve with the ambition of offering even greater flexibility in the future. There are no set minimum days in the office, except where these are linked to local country arrangements and allowances, and people can work from any Colt country for up to 30 days per calendar year, subject to remote working abroad guidelines.

Supriya Manchanda is one of many employees who benefit from Colt's Flexible First scheme. Thanks to Colt's culture, Supriya can pursue her real passion in life, yoga, which improves both her physical and mental health, as well as her productivity at work. 

Following a morning and evening fitness routine

Supriya follows yogis on social media for inspiration and motivation, and she has now incorporated essential morning and evening routines into her daily life, which she describes as a "game-changer".

"My evening routine now consists of a two-hour intense yoga session and jogging. And my mornings now begin with deep healing chants of 'OM' and essential stretches, followed by meditation and fresh air. I like to balance indoor and outdoor workouts for a well-rounded fitness routine," explains Supriya.

Improving both her personal and professional life

This routine has had a positive impact on Supriya's diet and sleep schedule, resulting in increased focus and creativity in both her personal and professional life.

"Yoga and other exercises have helped me to remain active during work hours which promotes better physical health. This is something I was missing as an ex-avid yoga practitioner and an athlete back at school," explains Supriya.

"The above wouldn’t be possible without the introduction of Colt’s Flexible First scheme, which has provided me with an incredible opportunity to focus on long overdue improvements to my health. I’m really grateful for this program as it’s provided me with an invaluable opportunity to enhance my work-life balance," adds Supriya.
