WAVESTONE has been awarded Best Workplaces™ Luxembourg 2023 for the second year in a row (N°4 - Medium Companies category). Let's meet with Alessandro Zamboni, Partner - Head of Luxembourg and discover how they create a great workplace culture with and for their employees.
How do you create a unique environment for your employees?
It’s a mix of two main factors:
- Creating a unique environment for employees involves drawing from best practices across various industries and organizations, including those within Wavestone. This allows us to learn from successful models and adapt them to our specific needs.
- Placing great importance on regularly gathering feedback from employees and staff delegations. This ensures that our workplace culture remains dynamic and responsive to the needs and preferences of our employees.
How do you combine freedom, autonomy and trust?
Combining freedom, autonomy, and trust is achieved by fostering a culture that emphasizes a clear corporate policy and effective delegation of responsibilities. This approach empowers employees at all levels, regardless of their position or years of experience. By setting expectations and providing the necessary resources and support, we create an environment where employees feel trusted and have the freedom to make decisions and contribute meaningfully to the company.
According to you, what is the secret to be on the Best Workplaces™ List?
The secret to being on the Best Workplaces™ List is actively and consistently listening to employee feedback, both positive and negative. This allows us to make informed decisions and implement actions that align with their expectations. A key aspect of this process is maintaining trust by always keeping promises made to employees.
What is the impact of the Great Place To Work® recognition program on the retention and attraction of your talents?
The Great Place To Work® recognition program positively impacts both retention and attraction of talents. Internally, it fosters a sense of pride and commitment among employees, as they feel valued and recognized for their contributions. Externally, the recognition serves as a signal to potential candidates that our company is committed to providing a supportive and rewarding work environment, making it an attractive choice for top talents.
What is your 2023 HR priority?
Our 2023 HR priorities include strengthening our management team's capabilities on key HR topics and continuing to focus on retaining our talents by actively listening to their feedback and advice. Maintaining open communication channels with our employees will help us ensure that their needs and expectations are consistently met, ultimately contributing to a thriving work environment.
