A positive environment for learning is always critical for success, whether it is the environment of a classroom or the environment of our organization. The learning environment provided by our organization is a function of the organizational culture. Organizational culture means the values, attitudes and beliefs reflected in the mission, goals, and practices of the organization.
The Board of Directors and senior staff of our company have set a healthy tone for the organization's culture. Their decisions and actions view learning as a positive way to improve individual performance and the performance of the organization. They believe that growth of the organization is directly proportional to the growth of the individuals in the organization. These positive outlooks are reflected in the value statements, policies and structures that guide the operation of the organization.
The kind of difference it makes for our company when all the employees bring their 100% about solving problems, making recommendations, expressing their new ideas, and taking care of your customers is immeasurable.
Every company today needs employees who are enthusiastic and who bring the very best of themselves to work. We need this not just from top performers but from every employee, every day, in order just to be competitive and survive, let alone thrive. The single element that distinguishes our company from another more than anything else is our people and the effort they exert.
The secret behind this are the bonds that we have built with our employees. Because we believe that when you trust and respect your people and really connect with them they will respond with commitment and enthusiasm.
Finding a suitable balance between work and daily living is a challenge that all workers face. Families are particularly affected. The ability to successfully combine work, family commitments and personal life is important for the well-being of all members in a household. Skipper Limited helps to address the issue by encouraging supportive working practices, making it easier for employees to strike a better balance between work and home life. We believe that a happy employee can only come from a happy home and that there are no substitutes of the above.
When individuals feel that they cannot be themselves at work, they will not engage fully as part of the team or in assigned work. This type of 'closed' environment can significantly impact an individual's involvement in the organization, potentially resulting in low staff morale, increased absenteeism, decreased productivity and retention difficulties.
The top management at Skipper plays an important role in setting the tone for the shift towards increased diversity and inclusiveness in an organization. Open, effective communication, as well as clear channels for feedback optimizes the opportunity for discussion of issues related to inclusion and discrimination. We at Skipper don't believe in partiality or inclinations towards any communities whatsoever. At Skipper everybody is equally welcome.
Employee recognition is the timely, informal or formal acknowledgement of a person's or team's behaviour, effort or business result that supports the organization's goals and values, and which has clearly been beyond normal expectations.
To be really effective in their jobs, Skipper understands the psychology of praising others for their good work, to apply the principles of employee recognition themselves and to encourage others to initiate it in their working relationships.
Appreciation is a fundamental human need. Skipper always believes in awarding the deserving and motivating the struggling. Skipper values employee satisfaction, which is how productivity rises, and they are motivated to maintain or improve their good work.
Praise and recognition are essential to an outstanding workplace. People want to be respected and valued for their contribution and Skipper is aware of this reality.
