Of course, being a global organization with a footprint in 80+ countries the culture and values initiatives are omnipresent at SoftwareONE from various culture days to the Human Resources teams in different geographies.
The UK team, for example, dedicated a week to ‘wellness’ for its UK-based employees. Each day focused on a different component of wellness to include physical exercise, mindfulness, nutrition and financial planning activities. The benefits of this program brought employees together, improved morale and enhanced productivity amongst team members.
In addition, the UK HR team also created a set of four development courses, based on feedback from the business, to increase soft skills and continue professional development, while also providing monthly people management training to support line managers in promoting the SoftwareONE culture.
Emily Lamb, HR director for the UK, believes strongly that, “Our people are our DNA and we are passionate about creating an environment where they can succeed, develop and have fun! We’ve focused strongly this year in providing tailored development opportunities and promoting well-being in the workplace. We have received fantastic support from the business and it’s been great to see so many people taking part in everything we have to offer.”
