The Secret Behind A Happy Workforce (No, It’s Not A Fancy Espresso Machine.)
Are you employees excited to wake up and show up to work each day?
Do they feel motivated to go above and beyond, and get things done?
How would they speak of your organization outside office hours?
Research shows that happy employees are 13% more productive at work. This means that a happy workforce is not just great for team morale but also benefits your business. With more than 64% of India’s workforce between the ages of 20 and 35, it’s time to reevaluate what organizations can do to keep employees happy. Afterall, they are our greatest assets.
In today’s gig economy, recruiting and retaining the right talent is an art in itself. While previous generations valued things like job stability and a secure income stream, the current generation is interested in more than just a paycheck. They care about the culture of the organization, opportunities for career advancement, work-life balance, diversity and inclusion, and being recognized for their contribution. They want to believe in, and be part of something bigger than themselves.
Recruitment and retention are two sides of the same coin. Many organizations spend a lot of time, energy and resources in finding the right talent but fail to keep them engaged, excited and interested. The reason? They confuse culture with “perks” like fancy espresso machines and free protein bars. The truth is, you cannot dangle perks like carrots and expect employees to feel appreciated. Sure, it’s a step in the right direction but it means nothing without training, skill development and opportunities to collaborate and climb up the ladder.
At Ozone, we believe that our employees are our greatest assets. You could have the best infrastructure, technology, products and brand; but the success of your company will depend on the people who build, optimize and nurture it. We are not shy about celebrating our teams’ achievements — however big or small. From regular compensation to recognition for performance and excellence, Ozone offers industry-best monetary remuneration and benefits that truly make our employees feel seen.
Our mentorship and training programs help nurture potential and provide plenty of opportunities for growth across the organization. Infact, several leadership positions at Ozone today are headed by people who started and shaped their careers here; which means they evolved with the organization’s goals, leveraged its challenges and transformed them into leadership opportunities.
At the end of the day, an organization is only as strong as its employees. We are the sum total of all the people who work for us — their experiences, perspectives, talents, values, and personalities. That’s why we always refer to our organization as our “Ozone family.” There’s a sense of belonging, ownership and connection that every employee feels when they walk into our offices. The ripple effect of treating “people as assets” can be felt beyond our offices as they become advocates for our vision of “adding life to years and years to life” in the real world.
As we continue to create a culture of transparency, happiness and trust, we look forward to growing our family and making an impact together.
