A great place to work, how to persist in corona?
CEO Wouter Torfs explains that it is not easy but that an open and transparent way of communicating towards all employees helps to maintain the culture. He is aware that many of his employees fear to lose their jobs as the lockdowns have a devastating effect on the revenue. In order to reduce the stress and to remain connected, the employees are invited to talk about their worries and concerns in team Zoom sessions. Next to these therapeutic talking sessions, the company offers online reading, sporting and meditation sessions.
Showing empathy and truly understanding the worries of your people has been in the DNA of the Torfs brand since long. An open and honest communication from the CEO and management team combined with a caring attitude for their employees is really the best way to create a reliable and empathic employer brand. Showing you care really starts inside your company.
