Yana's Story On Work-Life Balance
My job as a Senior Communications Specialist for Employee Communications is to connect, engage, inspire and inform employees. I work with internal partners across the company to help make sure employees understand our business strategy and have a clear picture of how they contribute to our goals.
For a busy mom of two girls, having a career and managing other responsibilities can be a challenge at times. Principal is very supportive of our work-life balance. It’s a great feeling to know that your employer values you as an individual and supports you outside of work. Because of the company flexibility, I never have to stress out about getting my work done while successfully managing things at home.
