It’s not easy to stand out in such an environment. Even if a recruiter may succeed, it’s worth considering whether the interest of the new prospects is for the long-term or is it an infatuation merely resulting from the momentary desire to get some minor, superficial plus in comparison to all the other options available. Shall the latter be the case, unfortunately, it hardly has any retaining power for the future. At delaware, we believe that mutual long-term engagement can only be reached when we all share the same values and utilize them to make our vision come true.
At delaware, we believe that mutual long-term engagement can only be reached when we all share the same values and utilize them to make our vision come true. This, however, is not only crucial when hiring someone new, but, from time to time, we also feel the need to take a step back from our daily routines, sit down and reflect on where we are. Are we at the right place? Are we going at the right pace? Are we aligned with our values? At delaware, we believe that engaging our employees and retaining them is essential. Hence we wanted to create an informal event where we, as a team, can think through together and discuss what we see as delaware’s most important values and what it is that brings us to the office day by day. We intended to use this friendly forum to see whether there is any difference between how managers and employees see these, and if so, what they are. In order to gain our objective, we organized the very same workshop with the two groups separately. We believed that with this event that is outside of our normal routine, we all can gather our thoughts and consciously see what actually provides our daily motivation.
