BENEFITS OF WORKING IN OUR SOCIETY - PART 4
13. Gives us livelihood
Social vices are unacceptable lifestyles in our society. These include drug abuse, prostitution, and robbery among others. This is mostly due to the association of bad company, lack of money and sometimes frustrations in life. Work always keeps you engaged, makes you get money because you are paid and these prevent some of these social vices.
14. Work allows us to build a family and make friends
Work allows people to do other things with life, like have a personal and social life. If there was no productive work, people would not be able to have divide their lives into different productive units. Family is one of the most important part of life, concurrently with work, and an important source of happiness.
15. Work provides opportunities for social contribution
Work isn’t merely a means of earning a living; it’s an avenue for making a meaningful impact on society. Individuals contribute their expertise to projects, products, or services that benefit their communities.
This sense of purpose bolsters self-worth and amplifies a feeling of connectedness with others. As people engage in work that improves lives, from developing innovative technologies to providing essential services, they cultivate a profound sense of social responsibility. This intrinsic motivation to contribute positively to the world drives not only personal satisfaction but also societal progress.
16. Health insurance
Beyond the mandatory sick and critical illness leave all companies are legally obligated to offer their team members, some companies provide additional medical benefits. This may include benefits such as dental coverage, an annual allowance for eye care, and life insurance. Organizations may offer non-mandatory health care benefits to provide team members with a better work-life balance.
