The Ingredients for Making a Positive Work Environment

Do you like where you work?

What about the reason you work where you do? Do you like why you go into work in the first place? On top of those questions, do you actually enjoy the people you work with? You know, your peers, your bosses and such? Do you like working with them every day?

You might already know a little bit about Incept and how we are continuing to steadily make it known in the blood donor recruitment field why we are able to consistently strengthen the relationship with each blood donor we talk to while representing our multiple clients. A lot of that has to do with the overall environment in which we work.

I love pizza. It is one of my personal favorite “feel good” foods. Did you have a bad day? Eat some pizza. Did your car break down? Eat some pizza. Did your girlfriend break up with you? Eat some pizza. You could be having the worst day of your life, but you’ll never not want to eat a slice of pizza. It just feels good. So picture your favorite pizza to eat. It doesn’t matter if it is one of the big-named franchises or your local, beat-up, hole-in-the-wall kind of joint. You know, the one where it looks likemafia members do business deals. Now continue to picture your favorite pie. Remember how it tastes? How the dough is just so fresh -lightly crispy but hearty and just the perfect golden-brown on the bottom. Can you picture the sweetness of the marinara sauce as it introduces itself to your taste buds? And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, your palate gets body slammed by a wave of pepperonis surfing on mozzarella. I love a pizza pie because all the ingredients come together to make up something great.

Before I get too hungry, the whole recipe to our company atmosphere can be broken down into three essentialingredients that come together to create thiscrispy, but lightly crunchy, cheesy, saucy mess of an awesome metaphorical pizza. I guess in our case you could say theConversational Marketing™ Experts (CMEs) are the toppings!

Simple Ingredients Towards Making a Positive Work Environment

  • Invoke meaning for the job in your employees. Never before coming to Incept did I ever realize the importance of donating blood – I mean, to a point, as I did donate in high school. However, I had nowhere near as much knowledge of donating blood prior to working at Incept! I also have a clear idea of the good that I’m doing while recruiting blood donors. I’m not just flipping burgers or mowing grass or anything like that, but I’m literally making a difference in someone’s life with each blood donor who donates. There truly is meaning in what I do as Conversational Marketing™ Expert (CME) that goes beyond the paycheck. Instilling meaning into an employee’s position can give them drive to naturally want to do well.
  • Be open to explain why certain company decisions are made. Our very own president, Sam Falletta, is a man that doesn’t just hide behind closed doors of an office all day. He makes himself available to company employees. He explains the choices he makes for the company and the progress our company makes to everyone during a few of our Employee of the Month meetings, as well as monthly CME meetings. At Incept, we understand why a lot of choices are made because Sam has explained on how our clients come first, followed by our own company goals, and then the company takes care of it’s employees. The beauty of this philosophy is each individual employee puts their best effort towards our clients, which in turn benefits our company ultimately benefiting them as it comes full-circle. The more our clients we represent win, the more Incept and its individual employees win as a team.
  • It really is about the people you work with and employ. At Incept, the concept of family comes with high priority. I can say with confidence that I have never worked at a place where I have so many friends in one building. Isn’t that great? I truly think so. We have had employees hold company bake sales for other employees during times of hardship – where whatever the bake sale makes Incept matches to give to that person. Conversational Marketing™ Experts (CMEs) aren’t just competitive, but cooperative, and everyone is friendly to each other and learns from each other for the most part. And truly our upper management at Incept reveal themselves to be real people. They are professional, but at the same time step up to be genuinely real and offer an open door and a listening ear to anything you bring to them. The constructive and family-like atmosphere at Incept truly is what distinguishes our Conversational Marketing™ firm from just another telerecruitment agency and plays a cornerstone role in our growing success within the industry.
