HOW WE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
PACE supports forward-thinking businesses that want to get ahead of the pack through a new workplace culture with a sustainable pace of work.
In a world where everything always needs to be done more quickly and efficiently, production lines are fully automated and services are being replaced by algorithms all around us, creativity and innovation are two of the most important factors through which successful businesses can continue to make the difference.
To enhance these factors in a sustainable way, what’s needed is an optimal rhythm that gives people the flexibility to act quickly when necessary, while also giving them sufficient space for recovery and growth. Only by pursing this ambition can we continue to adapt and come up with solutions for the challenges tomorrow will bring.
All kinds of solutions are being touted these days for more flexibility, more wellbeing and less stress at work. But isn’t that actually the bare minimum we should be looking to achieve? What is the impact of these solutions on the success of businesses in the long term if people never quite get round to transforming them into sustainable habits? We believe there’s a whole other way to do these things.
Here at PACE, we approach these issues based on our combined experience as employees, managers and keen endurance athletes. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we believe in a healthy mix of:
- Gaining insight from your own experience, both inside and outside of your comfort zone.
- Getting the ball rolling yourself and forming sustainable habits.
- Continuing to transcend yourself by having the courage to make smart choices.
- Peer learning in communities of similar-minded people who inspire and strengthen one another.
- Seeking new perspectives through exercise and nature.
Our approach is based on insights from positive psychology, research into happiness at work, business and (endurance) sports.
By making a sustainable pace of work an element of a new workplace culture, we are nourishing resilience and creating mental and physical bandwidth. That way, we don’t just leave employees feeling stronger; we also generate a sustainable impact on forward-thinking businesses and society as a whole.
