You may have been offered with the best compensation package by your prospective employer but is money the only reason why you are going for that company?
BAVI was represented by its AVP for Human Resources and Legal Services, Attorney Nedo Sasing, in London.
Think again. Think about the little things that are not measured by money alone. The little extras and perks that brighten up your day, which may be much more valuable for your long term career growth.
Consider the seemingly little things that you tend to overlook - the training and development opportunities that companies offer you. The road they pave for a brighter career path for you - to become the best that you can be.
Consider the things that contribute to your state of happiness. When you are out there ready to face the corporate world, think not only about monetary rewards. Think about the emotional benefits, too.
Chris McKenzie, managing partner of McGladrey USA says: “Competition for talent is tough. But we also know that we must offer more than competitive compensation to keep workers happy. It’s a race without an ending. We’ve got to continue to stay on track and be consistent, because in order to have the highest client engagement level, we need the highest employee engagement level as well,” he says.
McKenzie delivered an environment in which workers thrive to boost their morale at work. His firm focused on developing its 540 Boston-based workers through mentoring and training with sponsored outings and work-life balance. Such efforts have earned his company a spot as one of the Best Places to Work in the U.S. for the first time.
In the Philippines, BAVI (Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc.) is shaping up to be a McGladrey so much so that it was nominated as finalist in the global Oscars for people management, the IIP (Investors in People) where companies from 75 countries worldwide participated.
It emerged as finalist in the BEST NEWCOMER (large company) category. Finalists in this category were chosen on the basis of their incredible passion, dedication and unswerving commitment to investing in their work force. They have clear understanding of what they want to achieve and genuinely care about their people and their future.
Despite being a relatively young company compared to the business moguls in the country, BAVI emerged as the only Philippine company to be nominated in the said category, and the only company from Asia. The company can only be proud of how its management practices are starting to attract international recognition.
