Perks are nice to have, and fun is an essential element of any workplace.
But a company’s culture is more than its perks; It is the personality of the company. It defines the environment in which the employees work. A company culture is the practices that reflect the company’s core values and nurtures its team. And because of this, a culture is the crux of any company.
We, at The Workshore, take our company culture very seriously. There are four essential elements in our company culture: Freedom and Autonomy, Mastery, Transparency and Communication, and Working with good people.
Freedom and Autonomy
We always thrive to create an environment where the employees can live the life they desire.
Apart from providing the basics, like fair salaries, issuing paid leaves, and letting people work how and when they want; the most attractive policy we have is our remote-work policy. Our employees can work for about 30 days every year, from anywhere they choose to work- whether it is from home or from any part of the world.
In fact, James, the CEO & Founder, who loves to travel, always works on-the-go. Vashika, one of our Design and Communication Lead, is currently working from a remote location.
Everyone in our team values life beyond work. They also understand how their work will actually support and satisfy the life outside the office.
At The Workshore, the employees enjoy full autonomy and are free to use their skills to create an impact. The employees who feel empowered by their teammates and their leaders give into their work fully and own their contribution. The employees understand their significance in the company and give their best.
We care about our employees’ professional development for their benefit as much as for our own. We make sure that the employees are sharpening their existing skills and learning new ones in the workplace.
Often skilled employees feel the need to choose between a tough job and an impactful one. They think that developing difficult professional skills and creating a positive impact can never co-exist together.
But we don’t think that.
We think that when you give people a chance to grow in their own field, the impact side will come naturally. In order to retain the employees, we regularly encourage them to sharpen their skills. We do that by matching their natural skills and strengths which will benefit the company.
Transparency and communication
At The Workshore, we believe that honesty and transparency is a key to create a good company culture. We always work to build an open transparent system throughout the company. The upper-level management regularly holds meetings with the entire company to discuss the goals and objectives that the company is trying to reach.
Communication is an essential part of the company. We always aim to have an open communication with the employees and help them feel that their opinions matter. Each employee should feel that they are a valuable asset to the company. This way they can make a difference in the organization.
Working with good people
The fundamental principle of creating a positive culture is to build a strong support system. We hire the top engineers and professionals who are always excited to take up challenges. The open environment in the company of mentoring and collaboration motivates them to work and learn from others. The employees feel that when they are surrounded by passionate people they feel happy and enthusiastic.
Having an awesome workplace in this competitive world is crucial for the success of a company. And a great culture has very little to do with the common conception of a perks-oriented workplace.
Employees are eager to work for companies in which they are valued whether they are millennials, older workers or a combination or generations. They all generally search for similar things.
All these employees want their work to be fulfilling, want to be treated with respect, and work for a company they are proud of. To improve our company culture, we have created an environment where our employees and the company thrives. We continuously elevate the feeling of self-governance, freedom, and success for employees by uniting them through these shared values.
