Alan Jackson's song 'It's Five O'clock Somewhere,' expresses his anticipation for the work day to end. Hard work and dedication are qualities of top talent, but even the most engaged employees need free time to enjoy their personal lives. Spending time with friends, family, and even having some 'alone time' are necessary to maintain high Engagement levels. In this presentation, Murat Philippe will reference Jackson's song to illustrate the importance of a healthy work/life balance.
