Any and all companies live and are carried by one thing…their employees. Whether it is a company that has only one employee or over a thousand, without employees, nothing would happen. In my experience, there is a single factor as to the great and sustained success of a company, and that is Belief. That is for one, whichever company that one is employed, to believe that that company will succeed. The belief that whatever that one contributes to the company is important, that it makes a difference. But not only the belief that one holds in the company, but also the reciprocated belief the company holds in the one employee. A company is team or a collection of teams and when all believe in one another, the company does more than just service, it succeeds and is profitable. Where there lacks belief in any party, there inevitably will lack success.
I wish to be a part of a company that is very diverse when it comes to responsibilities, tasks, projects and jobs. The “zone”, or the way people think about an idea or how to approach an idea as individuals or as the collective team, can be fluid and dynamic. Change is good. It will allow me, the team, and the company to grow. Where one succeeds all succeed and there is no nitch for only static and repetitious functionality.
A company that allows for many directions and paths that the team/work force can venture. A position where there is no established set way or standard procedure but rather more opportunity to share experiences, learn experiences, and when no experience exists all the members can think “outside the box” to tackle whatever needs to be done. Thus, experience is formed.
I want to belong to a company where people work closer to one another. It allows that glue between them to be strong and binding. But, not just between members of the team but with others outside the team. It’s important to have close connections with those associated with the business. Vendors, contractors, customers, clients can all sense when a company has purpose, direction, and closeness that many large corporations can sometimes lack.
