As an organisation, valuing employees and working daily to boost staff morale is incredibly important. For employees, feeling valued and happy in the workplace is a high priority, and communication and connectivity is a big part of this.
Staying Connected with Colleagues:
While the internet has given us many new ways of connecting with people around the globe across multiple platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat – are we now living in a society where we are perhaps disconnected to those who are closest to us, be that with our colleagues, family or friends?
The influx of new and efficient technologies has grown exponentially and taken over our personal lives, as well as our professional lives. The rise in online connections and communications has also resulted in various traditional ways of working being replaced by technology. Some changes have been for the better including increased productivity, increased collaboration and heightened security, while some can be perceived as negative.
In the hustle and bustle of busy life in the western world, there is a common perception that we are more connected than ever before. However, studies are now showing that we are actually more distant with those we interact with on a daily basis – including our colleagues in the workplace. Thus it is vital, more than ever before, to ensure that you are working for a company that values these human interactions and promotes deeper, stronger, and more meaningful relationships across the board.
Company Culture & Staff Morale:
Over the past 10 years, company culture has become a popular point of discussion. There are clear benefits to a strong, unified company culture and office environment. Before you join an organisation, one of the most important things to consider is the culture of the company and the people you will be working with every day.
Does your potential company value employees? Will you be working in a collaborative environment that supports your personal learning and development? Will you get continuous support and socialise with the people you work with? Will your hard work be recognised and rewarded? Will you earn the career progression that you deserve? These are the questions you should be considering before accepting a role at a new organisation.
Valuing our Staff at Mantell Associates:
The team at Mantell Associates recently went to Portugal to celebrate the amazing success both our employees and the company has seen in the past year. This was made possible through dedication and hard work broken down into long hours, commitment and grit – a lot of which was achieved during the peak effects of COVID-19. As an organisation, we are also forever grateful to all of our amazing clients and candidates who have made our success in the past year possible.
Mantell Associates is a rapidly growing organisation, but at the very core of what we do is the people who work for us. Should you be looking for your next opportunity and you think joining the Mantell Associates team could be the right move for you, it is important for you to know that you will be trained, rewarded and valued from the very first day you join.
We are also looking forward to partnering with new clients and candidates as we continue to grow and expand, and as we continue to successfully provide staffing solutions across the Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences industry, in particular to the CDMO/CMO and Preclinical CRO sectors.
