At Risen Vietnam, the Board of Directors always tries to have the best working environment for our employees
1. The ‘open skeptic’ environment
In a skeptical environment, everything is questioned because questions are encouraged. When someone suggests a new marketing strategy, someone else asks why it would work better than the alternative. Questions feed discussion, and because everyone’s asking questions, everyone is moving the company forward. Nobody is judged or reprimanded for his or her ideas, and all ideas are considered equally.
2. The individual-focused environment
In an individual-focused environment, the office offers individuals flexibility to customize their own working styles. Some individuals may be allowed to work from home if that doesn’t interfere with their productivity. Others may have flexible hours, and still others may customize their desks and furniture however they like. Everyone works differently, and this environment recognizes and celebrates that fact.
3. The no-walls environment
The no-walls environment is all about keeping the team together. There are no offices or enclosed cubicles (or if there are, the doors are open), so employees can speak freely with one another. These environments usually have a common break room, and team-building events to inspire cooperation and mutual appreciation.
4. The mutual-feedback environment
This environment favors honest feedback above all other forms of communication. When a worker needs to improve, he or she is told about it. When a boss’ approach is unproductive or inefficient, that communication is made, too. People trust one other to give, listen to and act on mutual feedback, and everyone can improve as a result.
5. The unified environment
The unified environment allows people to operate as individuals, but still focus on succeeding as a team. This type of environment usually sets “team” goals and allows people to work together in smaller groups to accomplish team tasks. Employees are focused on working together, and individually hold themselves accountable for the quality of their work.
