At Órama we believe in fostering an environment that values personal growth, professional development, and the contributions of our employees. Today, we reflect on the experiences shared and express our gratitude for the dedication and learnings that have emerged from each individual’s journey within our company.
Understanding the Importance of Work Culture:
Before joining any organization, it is crucial to understand the work culture and ensure alignment with personal goals. At Órama, we have cultivated a work culture that promotes collaboration, adaptability, respect and a supportive environment. As rightly put by Sir Alex Ferguson in his book: Leading: Learning from Life and My Years at Manchester United:
“You don’t get the best out of people by hitting them with an iron rod. You do so by gaining their respect, getting them accustomed to triumphs and convincing them that they are capable of improving their performance.”
We encourage our employees to thrive in this atmosphere, allowing them to make valuable contributions while nurturing their own professional aspirations. For example, the day starts by asking everyone what new things that they have learnt and if they would like to share with everyone. In addition, we usually emphasise on how valuable they are to the company. This fosters a spirit of mutual respect among all employees and develops a sense of responsibility towards the organization.
Valuing Actual Experience and Skills:
Experience is not solely measured by the number of years one has worked in a particular field. It is the combination of practical knowledge, real-world expertise, and the ability to adapt to new challenges that truly defines experience. At Órama, we recognize and appreciate the value of actual experience, empowering our team members to leverage their skills effectively and contribute meaningfully to our company’s success. For instance, junior employees are encouraged to voice out their opinions on any matter whether it is on how works can be improved or on what type of team building activity the company can invest in.
Overcoming Challenges and Building Resilience:
Challenges are an inherent part of any professional journey. At Órama we recognize the importance of embracing challenges as opportunities for growth and learning. We stand alongside our employees, offering guidance and support as they navigate the demands of a fast-paced environment. Through these challenges, our team members develop resilience and acquire valuable skills that strengthen their professional journey. We strongly believe that our company is like a hand and all the employees are like fingers. Therefore, just like no five fingers in our hands are equal, similarly no two employees are the same. Every employee has his or her own diverse way of getting work done. To solve the regular challenges at work, it is vital that these fingers work together and pack a punch to every day’s problems.
Fostering Collaboration and Teamwork:
Effective collaboration and teamwork are at the heart of our company’s success. We believe that by leveraging the diverse strengths and experiences of our team members, we can achieve greater heights. The power of collaboration allows us to generate innovative ideas, solve complex problems, and propel our company forward. At Órama, we also recognise the employees’ efforts and value the collective spirit that drives our team’s achievements. This results in the employee feeling proud of taking ownership of their work and their contribution to the Company’s success.
Training and Development:
Training and development are key ingredients to retaining top talent and reduce staff turnover. At Órama, no stone is left unturned to ensure that our employees are provided with the necessary training to ensure that they are always up to date. One of the best ways to show how important our employees are to us is to always give them the opportunities to learn new skills. This will not only contribute to their overall development but help them progress the success ladder.
As Ryan Holiday rightly pointed out: “Think progress, not perfection” (from the book – The Obstacles is the way). In fact, this forms the motto of our company – “Think the Órama Way” which is believing in the progress of all our stakeholders.
As we reflect on the experiences shared, we extend our deepest appreciation to all our employees who have contributed and are contributing to our company’s growth and success. At Órama we remain committed to providing a supportive environment where individuals can embrace growth, overcome challenges, and make meaningful contributions. Together, we will continue to foster an atmosphere of collaboration, personal development, and collective achievement as we navigate the ever-evolving business landscape.
