Our Unique culture
In our company we have this unique culture, wherein we are gathered on our lunch break once or twice a month to have a pizza meal and talk about our work problems, suggestions and complaints (we call it “the Pizza day”). I know that it is actually a strategy to encourage all employees to help one another, to be honest, this is one of the reasons why I really enjoy working in Pines International Academy because they give everyone an equal participation at the same time we are indulged with free food ha-ha; This is also the right time when we can have a casual conversation with our bosses and co-workers, our bosses even call us Ading or Kabsat on our “Pizza day", so there is no tension between Employees and Bosses, we can definitely share whatever thoughts and Ideas we have.
I can say that it is one of our unique cultures because our CEO agrees to put in some money for more or less 10 boxes of pizza, chips, coffee or sodas to feed all teachers and admin staff in Research and Development department (yeah, it looks like a picnic for an hour!!!), I think not all companies will agree with this Idea just to make their employees well-pampered “regularly” but our CEO always say that happy employees tend to be industrious ones. (Well, I really love the way he thinks).
