The past years changed the business world in terms of technology, digitalization, objectives, and opportunities. Worldwide, many companies had to adapt and adjust their business strategy to the new ways of working, to maintain a stable working environment.
For us, it wasn’t an easy road and it’s still a challenging process, but we proved that under any circumstances, We Make It Happen. Our team’s efforts paid off and we’re excited to announce that we won the Employer of the Year Award (less than 800 employees) at the Romanian Business Services Forum & Awards 2022, organized by Outsourcing Today & The Diplomat Bucharest.
This award recognizes the industry company which has achieved excellence in the provision of internationally recognized training to its employees, an employer who promotes the value of quality environment at the workplace. We measure the quality of our working environment by the wellbeing and development of our colleagues, the extension and constant improvement of our services, and last but not least, the competitive benefits package. We invest as often and as much as possible in trainings, workshops and different courses, development programs for our colleagues.
In Q3 we had a rollout of the Skill Management program, in which each employee was assigned a profile based on their activity. The employees would then evaluate and rate the corresponding skill set and wherever there were gaps, they could assign themselves courses.
The current skills catalogue consists of 1400 skills and is open for expansion. The skills are categorized in professional skills, social skills and languages.
Skill management is an essential part of our strategic workforce planning. We need new skills to meet current and future challenges, and we need to build them up.
In 2021, on top of all internal programs and development opportunities, we allocated over 40000 euros for our employees to develop further.
Furthermore, in 2021 we organized a number of workshops for time management, budgeting, communication with customers, nutrition, cooking and many more.
In addition to all of the above, each employee receives 4800 lei/year, on the Online Benefit platform, to take any courses available there. Everyone has access to an in-house learning & training platform with 7k courses and can register for development programs within the DTSE company.
