We have since our inception focussed on four pillars that have been the cornerstone ofour existence and these pillars continue to drive our growth forward. We would like toshare a few insights on those pillars and how they drive our business.
a) Excellence is the raison detre of our existence. At InfoBeans excellencereflects in designed our offices our policies client engagement training programs andeven our cultural programs. The underlying belief is that unless we seek perfection inevery aspect of what we do excellence will only be on paper and not practiced.
We empower our teams to achieve and sustain outstanding levels of performance that meetor exceed the expectations of all the stakeholders. This focus on excellence ultimatelyhelps the company achieve its goals by honing the talent of our people by helping themrealize both their organizational and personal goals.
Bottomline is we strive to Create WOW in everything we do!
b) Ownership in our opinion is the foundation of trust in an individual and in theorganization. Accountability breeds responsibility and every team member at InfoBeansfunctions as a highly accountable individual whether he/she is working as a team or as asole contributor.
One small way that we like to walk the talk is by motivating our associates to becomepartner in the business under InfoBeans Partner Program (ESOP). This way theyown a part of the Company and hence a direct involvement in its affairs. Webelieve that motivates team members to take initiative thats in the companysbest interest versus looking only at whats in their personal interest. Thisencourages our team to take initiative where they may otherwise not and this of course isvery close to what taking ownership is all about.
c) Creating a culture of compassion in the workplace is where manysuccessful companies are placing their attention today and InfoBeans has focussed on thisaspect since the time we started. Compassion involves more of putting oneself inother persons' shoes and genuinely wanting to understand and help them. Itinvolves beginning to have a totally different perspective when it comes to showingkindness caring and willingness to help others. We believe that when we treat otherscompassionately we build a sense of belongingness and feel being valued. This creates ahappy and fulfilling work place where each team member wants to come back every morning.With this bonds are formed trust is established and a willingness to collaborate onprojects and shared visions becomes the driving force behind our intentions.
d) Openness as the fourth pillar of our company culture is to create an environmentwhere communication is transparent where there is a free exchange of ideas where thereare no walls that decide who can communicate with whom and where feedback can be exchangedfreely so that we build trust within the people and the organization. We have builtsystems seeking high involvement of leaders and team members in bringing positive changeencourage a culture of openly discussing decision making criteria and ensuring open forumson providing feedback for organizational policies and procedures so that they are appliedfairly and equitably across the organization.
