Simpatico Studios is all about our people. There is nothing more important to us than the SimpatiCrew, which is comprised almost entirely of people (shout out to Tucker and Oscar, our resident four-legged SimpatiCrew members).
Here are 10 reasons why people are so important to us:
1 – People do everything: How much work would get done if we had no people?
(And don’t say robots, because people build the robots that build the other robots.)
Everything that ever gets done is done because of people. Not to mention people can whistle while they work, can a robot do that?
2-10 – See number 1
So you see, we’ve done the science and the results are in: people are really really great! Now, *clears throat and stands on soapbox* we’d like to dedicate this time to talk about how people are our greatest strength.
No, but for real though. The SimpatiCrew are the most important aspect of Simpatico, for so many reasons. We truly believe that a business is only as good as its Crew. We strive to align company goals with each of the Crew’s individual goals, so the success of the company is everyone’s success. The company only grows when our Crew grows—both professionally and personally. This belief is at the core of how we operate and everything we do here.
We could throw out stats like: organizations with high employee engagement outperform those with low employee engagement by 202% (Business2Community), or that disengaged employees cost organizations between $450 and $550 billion annually (The Engagement Institute), but in reality, this matters to us because it’s the right thing to do. We need to offer the best possible experience for our Crew because our people are people first, team members second.
It’s one thing saying that we care, it’s another to prove it with action. That’s why we dedicate time to making sure that we highlight and recognize when our team does exceptional work. As part of this ongoing effort, we will begin announcing the Most Valuable Crew award, a monthly award given for dedication and excellence, right here on The Fine Print*.
This award is given to the Crew member who had an A+ month where everything just went aces. The awarded Crew member did work that set them apart and the winner deserves to know that we noticed. Without further ado, our Most Valuable Crew member for the month of June goes to: Braxton Kocher! Congratulations to Braxton for having an amazing month and representing the company and himself so brilliantly at DIA 2018! All hail Braxton!
This concludes our regularly scheduled programming. If you’re looking for more on why people are a business’s most valuable asset, check out this lovely article from our friends at Forbes: Employee Satisfaction Is An Inside Job. Stay tuned!
