Q: Could you outline how Unidil enables the ‘employee experience’ in the workplace?

A: At Unidil, we believe that investing in the employee experience benefits both employees and the organisation as a whole, and drives overall business success and growth, directly impacting employee engagement, productivity and retention.

A positive employee experience begins with a supportive work environment where employees feel valued, motivated and committed to the organisation’s success.

To enable the employee experience in the workplace, we offer opportunities for skill development, and share our vision, goals and objectives clearly, while obtaining regular feedback from employees.

Also, we foster an open communication culture within the organisation while ensuring a sense of purpose by driving the company values.

There is also a need to invest to maintain employees’ wellbeing to obtain their support and win their hearts. This leads to greater job satisfaction, lower turnover rates and a stronger workplace culture in the organisation.

Q: In what new ways can a positive work culture be fostered?

A: A positive work culture can be fostered through transparency and open communication, recognition and rewards, providing opportunities for growth and development, encouraging a work-life balance, flexibility, and promoting collaboration and teamwork among employees.

It’s important for employers to show empathy, provide clear goals and foster a positive work culture so that employees feel that they are valued members of the organisation.

Furthermore, it’s important to create opportunities to get to know each other inside and outside of work to foster meaningful relationships between employees.

Work culture not only guides employees in the workplace but also customers on whether they want to do business with you.

Q: How can organisations pursue the philosophy of creating a ‘great workplace for all’?

A: If you want to create a great workplace within the company, you need to promote a broad culture that makes employees feel that they too are part of the organisation. They should feel that they are respected regardless of their ethnicity or other considerations.

A great workplace develops through the pursuit of a vision and mission, and values that are aligned with the goals and objectives of the organisation.

In such organisations, the senior management should be role models – committed to achieving the vision and mission, and cascading a unique work culture across the entire company.

The leadership should work closely on the development of employees. They should understand the unique potential of each employee, and provide necessary training and workshops to tap into latent potential.

In a great workplace, you should have an open communication culture that involves all levels of employees, customers and other stakeholders.

And in such organisations, there should be a culture of collaboration, teamwork and cross-functional communication, to achieve an organisation’s goals and objectives. In a great workplace, there should be fair policies and equality to ensure fairness for all levels of employees.

Finally, you cannot promote a great workplace if you’re not promoting continuous improvements. Moreover, external and internal environment changes need to be assessed regularly, and prompt action adopted to make the necessary shifts.
