Work-life balance at Uber with Monika Werthén

Better Monday Podcast - WORK-LIFE BALANCE AT UBER WITH MONIKA WERTHÉN

BETTER MONDAY EPISODE #4: WORK-LIFE BALANCE AT UBER WITH MONIKA WERTHÉN

In the fourth Better Monday podcast episode we’ll be discussing work-life balance at Uber with Monika Werthén. This episode is hosted by Milla Heikkilä.

Is it possible to have them both? A successful career and a healthy and loving family life? Yes, it is if you ask Monika Werthén. A super woman, who wakes up at 5:30 am to do her morning workout, after which she heads to the office to lead Uber’s marketing in the Nordics.


MONIKA’S TIPS TO RETAIN WORK-LIFE BALANCE

  • Be very clear about your agenda and your boundaries
  • Set the boundaries from the beginning – tell the company what you’re willing and able to to
  • Take your vacations – everyone needs some time off!
  • Cut yourself some slack – your 85% is someone else’s 100%
  • Learn to prioritise by having a dialogue with the people you work with
