People make the world go round. It doesn’t really matter what you build or sell, the truth stays the same: people are the ones who make things move forward in this ever-changing world and that is especially true in the world of business.
CEO’s and company managers from all over the world know that having the right people working in harmony makes most of the times the difference between failure and success. Therefore ensuring that your employees are happy and productive is perhaps one of the key elements for the success of your business.
Companies from the IT industry have understood this simple rule perhaps better than anyone else. Programming Pool is no exception to that. We have to admit that we are very lucky in that sense.
Our company gathered the right people from the very beginning. Some of them knew each other before coming to PPR. This is the advantage of living in a small city. Others met at Programming Pool and remained with us forming a united group of people.
Studies show that one of the best ways to be happy and relaxed at work is to be friends with your coworkers. Over the years we have encouraged our employees to do just that by organizing team buildings and different activities outside of work.
We have learned that having a pleasant work environment with the right energy helps build collegiality, confidence and a sense of common purpose. This is why the new Programming Pool office will be a fun and inspiring place where our engineers will work and relax during their breaks. As we already mentioned in our first blog post, a quarter of the office will be dedicated to relaxation areas with pool tables and game rooms, with plenty of room for relaxation and plenty of opportunities to socialize.
Our purpose is to help our employees build a closer relationship to the point where they look forward to get up in the morning, excited to start a new work day and catch up with their friends over lunch or during the breaks. We want to keep employees happy by helping them feel they are part of the team and that they are contributing to the success of the company. Having a good team spirit is bound to block negative energy and keep positive thoughts up.
Businesses don’t make decisions – people do. And happy people tend to make the best ones. This is why Programming Pool has always been about people…
