Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Vantage Circle believes in transparency. Our ultimate goal is to keep all our colleagues engaged, motivated, and goal-driven as an employee engagement platform. But many companies do not know the secret to maintain a great company culture.
Well, we do regular team lunches, office gatherings, and parties like any other workplace. We also provide medical coverage for our employees. But what people don’t know about us is that; we constantly promote peer appreciation using our own recognition platform. We do not hesitate to praise good work, and we do it impartial and unbiased. We use our products judiciously, from rewards and recognition to employee surveys. Also, all our employees use our Vantage Fit employee wellness app to keep track of their health and maintain good mental health. And we promote the same throughout the workplace.
We do not look for the “right fit.” Rather we seek someone who can add culturally. We believe training and mentoring give you experience. So, instead of just looking for the right fit, we look for candidates who can align with our culture, even if freshers.
We are ardent believers in workplace equity. Yes, that’s the key to achieving a great company culture. Equal rewards and recognition and employee perks are necessary to show your gratitude towards employee contribution. You do not have to claim you’re diverse and inclusive, but you automatically become one when you do so.
We hire diversely and welcome people from various backgrounds, cultures, and sexualities to ensure we get a diverse pool of talent. When we do so, we see employees coming up with varied perspectives that shape their decision-making at work with an innovative perception.Activate Social Media:
