Can you imagine this world without people? If you take away people, there’s no life. Life only happens because of and through people. People create life and we are not meant to live this life alone. We are meant to live in communities full of happiness, connection, and support. In the movie “Passenger”, Jim awakens Aurora after his pod malfunctions because he can’t bear the thought of living the rest of his life in isolation. We all need the feeling of inner connection with other human beings. People are the reason that life exists. They should always come first.
At In Time Tec, we understand that there is a whole person working for us. We have never been and will never be the kind of company who treats our employees as “cogs in a machine.” From our in-office gym to leading with love, we take every aspect of being human into account as we work with our employees. That is why we were thrilled when we learned about enhancing neuroplasticity and the core lifestyle habits to achieve optimal brain health.
The average person spends around 90,000 hours at work in their lifetime. I think it’s safe to say that it’s crucial for people to work at a place they enjoy. This also means that business owners not only need to navigate attracting top talent- but also retaining it. This starts with finding out what employees are really looking for in a job. Yes, money is an important aspect for most people when job searching, but ultimately people are looking for perks that go much deeper than monetary value.
Company growth is a good thing. It helps establish a stronger brand identity, makes it easier to acquire certain assets, expands opportunities, and drives business performance and profits. Growth does, however, stop being a good thing when you can’t keep up with it. In fact, it is detrimental to a company’s success when this happens. And outgrowing business processes and business infrastructure happens more often than you may think. For this reason, it is important to have procedures in place before you get to the point of outgrowing yourself.
