News : Granada Launches New Initiatives Through Its Non-Profit Quality of Life Project
Santa Barbara, CA July 16, 2014 -- Granada Corp, a provider of customer support solutions to the Fortune 500 and middle market, announce some new employee practices associated with its 501c3, the Quality of Life Project.
The non profit’s purpose is to help people live more enjoyable and contented lives. The organization accomplishes this by interviewing people that are accomplished, inspiring, thoughtful people with a seeming knack for life; and then sharing the interviewees' life perspectives and practices with the general public. The Quality of Life Project interviews well-known individuals like Richard Branson, Tom Skerritt, and Jacqueline Novogratz, as well as lesser known but equally interesting individuals such as Solly Amon who runs a fish market in Seattle. Other recent interviews include Annie Duke and Kelly Slater.
"We have decided to allow our employees to utilize our 501c3 platform to conduct their own interviews with individuals whose approach to life they respect and admire," stated Kit Cooper, CEO of Granada and Executive Director of Quality of Life Project. "This will improve the vastness and richness of our existing quality of life best practice repository, and allow our employees greater involvement in the movement."
Mariana Ramos, Granada’s COO, commented, "Life is one whole entity. It needs balance in all aspects: family and loved ones, spiritual self, and work. You cannot excel in life without working on all three. We want to provide our employees resources to get the most of their personal lives, not just work lives. We owe that to them given how much they put into our business."
Jesus Monfort, a work-from-home customer support professional working at Granada, commented, "Spending time going through the interviews is like having coffee with these people and learning what they do to get the most out of life. I’ve definitely been inspired by a few best practices I’ve come across. The more successful I am in my personal life, the better I perform for clients on a daily basis."
