SourceFuse recognized as a ‘Great Place to Work’ for the 4th Consecutive Year

On average, an employee spends 1/3rd of their lifetime in the workplace, which definitely implies their want for a workplace that is pertinent to their success in their respective careers. And for accelerating an organization’s business continuity, supporting great employee experience is a necessity, wherein the organization’s middle layer comes into perspective. Most organizations with a strong management hold on their teams come out as Great Workplaces. Being a great manager for the organization takes a certain level of personalized leadership for the diverse workforce and a strong focus aligned with the company’s vision. Especially when the company’s vision is across building cloud native technology for enabling businesses globally to perform better. 

With that, setting clear expectations for team members to make them independent and provide them with a certain level of autonomy when it comes to doing their work in their own best possible way. And, most importantly, for us, creating cloud-based services or products that add value to the world giving employees the opportunity to derive a sense of meaning from their work.

It is exhilarating for SourceFuse to be recognized as a ‘Great Place to Work’ organization by Great Place to Work® Institute (India) for the 4th consecutive year. Through this blog, we want to give our readers an inside look into the organization’s culture, showcase how we are providing uninterrupted business continuity during COVID-19, and what makes us a Great Place to Work consistently.

The five characteristics that we are most proud of as a Cloud Native Organization when it comes to being a ‘Great Place to Work®’:

  • Welcoming Culture: Welcoming new team members on their day of joining has been one of the most evolved practices at SourceFuse. The new joinee meets everyone in the office individually and as a team, for cultivating familiarity. There are separate lunches with the management team for a deeper association. Potlucks are also encouraged for inclusivity growth. During the pandemic, a new onboarding process has been put in place where new members of our team are made to engage with the rest of the workplace, during weekly video call catch-ups and are welcomed via social media. 
  • Recognition & Appreciation: Without Recognition, a workplace just reminisces a factory with chatbots. At SourceFuse, we reward each employee for their achievements with a shoutout during our weekly catch-ups/quarterly held town halls, offer small tokens of appreciation for all employees completing their work anniversaries and motivate a holistic learning experience by handing out extraordinary awards for completing cloud native certifications and gaining deep domain expertise in their respective fields. 
  • Open Communication & Transparency: Being a workplace with an employee strength of 250+, a healthy communicative culture becomes imperative. We have an open and comfortable workspace where each one can put across their perspective without being insecure.
  • High-Trust Workplace: A high-trust workplace puts the employee experience, not profit, at the center. Company cultures where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and positively engage with the people they work with. Employees at high-trust workplaces do happily give extra effort that drives growth, but in a sustainable way that goes far beyond engagement.
  • Highly Engaged Company: Employees feel aligned around and committed to an organization and its goals, and act with their colleagues to ensure success, beyond expectations – regardless of whether it is beyond their job role or self-interest. Their high level of engagement drives productivity business continuity, & shareholder returns and reduces cost by retaining talent.
