Ensuring a healthy and happy working environment is one of the crucial factors that a leader wants to incorporate into their company.
In the newest episode of OBP Connect, Cheska sat down with the HR Manager, Ms. Mayeth, to share with us the good working practices of our company that make employees stay and refer a friend, family, or even colleague to be part of the integral team.
She shares key points on how OBP fully understands the checklist to have an engaging and productive set of professionals working on its grounds.
Sense Of Belongingness and Connection
In this particular episode, Cheska asked Ms. Mayeth how employees in OBP feel a sense of belonging and connection, "We prioritize open communication and transparency at OBP, which helps our employees feel like they are part of the team. We also encourage collaboration and teamwork, and we make sure that all employees have a voice and the opportunity to provide feedback."
She also discussed how OBP keeps a reputable stand in taking care of its people and its credibility and giving quality services to its clients.
Prioritizing Good Company Culture
Ms. Mayeth said that OBP values a reliable stand for employee welfare and development, "Our company culture prioritizes integrity, excellence, teamwork, and respect. We communicate these values through regular training sessions, employee engagement programs, and leading by example. We also reinforce these values through recognition programs and performance reviews."
Investments On People
Ms. Mayeth believes that " Investing in our employees' well-being and fostering a sense of community is crucial to our success as a company. To this end, we have implemented various initiatives, such as team-building events, employee wellness programs, and company activities. These initiatives are design to promote collaboration, enhance morale, and provide personal and professional growth opportunities. We also value our employees' feedback and regularly hold general assemblies and employee surveys to gather their input and ideas. This feedback is critical to ensuring our initiatives are relevant, effective, and reflect our employees' needs and priorities. By prioritizing employee well-being and engagement, we create a work environment that is supportive, stimulating, and fulfilling, which translates into increased productivity, higher retention rates, and a more successful organization overall."
Actively Seek Feedback
Here at OBP, employees are engaged in developing and maintaining the company culture. She said, "At OBP, we understand the importance of employee involvement in shaping our company culture. We actively seek feedback from our team members through regular idea-gathering sessions and value their input and perspectives. In addition, we have established employee-led committees that focus on specific areas of our company culture, such as diversity and inclusion or employee engagement. These committees provide a platform for our employees to take ownership of important issues and drive meaningful organizational change. By involving our employees in developing our company culture, we create a sense of ownership, belonging, and empowerment that translates into a more engaged and motivated workforce. This approach improves our workplace culture and contributes to our overall success as a company."
Recognizes Employee Morale And Productivity
Regarding this aspect, Ms. Mayeth exclaimed, “Our company has an employee recognition program that enables team members to acknowledge and celebrate their peers' exceptional contributions. The introduction of this program has been a resounding success, with a significant positive impact on employee morale and productivity. By fostering a culture of appreciation and recognition, the program has created a work environment where team members feel valued, supported, and motivated to excel. This boosts employee satisfaction and enhances their overall performance and commitment to achieving the company's goals. Overall, the employee recognition program has proven to be a valuable tool for promoting a positive workplace culture and driving organizational success.”
She added, "We recognize the importance of a solid and consistent company culture. We embed our core values and mission statement into our policies and procedures to achieve this. It ensures that our team members are aware of the reminders of what we stand for and what we are striving to achieve.
In addition, we make sure that our hiring and onboarding processes align with our company culture. During the hiring process, we assess candidates for their skills, qualifications, and fit with our company culture. It includes behavioral-based interviews and reference checks to evaluate whether the candidate's values and work style align with ours.
For onboarding, we have a comprehensive program that covers our company culture, values, policies, and procedures. It includes training on our mission statement, core values, and expectations for behavior and conduct.
By embedding our values and mission statement into our policies and procedures and ensuring that our hiring and onboarding processes align with our company culture, we create a consistent and cohesive work environment that supports our team members in achieving their goals and contributes to our overall success."
Ms. Mayeth said, "Leadership is an essential component of cultivating and sustaining a healthy company culture. Effective leaders not only set the tone for the organization but also embody its values and principles. They serve as role models for their teams, providing guidance and encouragement as needed. Furthermore, they place a high priority on employee engagement and growth, recognizing that a company's success ultimately depends on the strength and well-being of its workforce. By prioritizing these key areas, leaders can foster a positive, supportive, and productive work environment that benefits everyone involved."
Open Communication And Transparency
She elaborates, "We encourage open communication and transparency, and we have a grievance procedure to address any conflicts or misunderstandings. We also ensure that all employees know our code of conduct and policies."
Impact Of Strong Company Culture
"A robust company culture can significantly enhance employee retention and recruitment efforts. Fostering a shared sense of belonging and purpose helps create a workplace where employees feel valued and motivated. Such an environment not only attracts job seekers seeking a positive work culture but also increases the likelihood of retaining existing employees who feel engaged and invested in their work. Ultimately, a strong company culture is a valuable asset that can positively impact the organization's overall performance and success." She explained.
