Best Version Media are a company that produces high quality micro tag magazines for subdivisions, niche industries and small communities and they operate globally. What the company has become known for in recent years however is not so much the high quality products that they produce, but the vibrant and exciting culture which they have created within the workplace. Many companies would pay very good money to have a working culture like the one that can be found here and both current and ex-employees have written glowing reviews about the company online. So what is it about the company that staff enjoy so much?
So many businesses take their staff for granted and they fail to do anything that can help them to feel valued. In the case of Best Version Media however this simply isn’t the case and they are regularly working with their staff in order to help them to feel like a key part of the team. Staff are often included in the decision which affect them and they are also respected when they come forward with ideas or new ways of working.
We have heard time and time again about the way that many companies pull bait and switch tactics on their staff, asking them to go above and beyond and then filling to return the favor. This is not something that happens any BVM however and instead the company is more than happy to let their staff take an afternoon off here and there for their own personal needs. There is no agreement in place but what this causes is a workforce which are more than happy to dig in and work harder or longer hours when the company needs it, because they know that the favor will be returned when they need something.
So many businesses believe that great performance from their staff is either what they are expected to do or they will reward them when arbitrary prizes such as employee of the month. Best version Media believes in real rewards for outstanding work and they often get extremely creative with gifting such rewards. Very often when the team has delivered well they will be whisked away for an activity or a night out together and this works to bond the team together and to incentivize them.
This is a company which is realistic about its employees, they understand perfectly what the team are capable of and they also have a perfect understanding of the responsibilities which many people have away from the office. This realism is what creates the right amount of expectation from the team and it is also the key to maintaining a happy workforce which people genuinely want to be a part of. The absence and turnover figures here are extremely low and that is because they manage their staff perfectly and have created a great culture for their company.
