The FOCUS Credo is in most parts, what we are every day. But it is also – what we aspire to be. It is also a call out to all those “awesome” people out there who think on broadly similar lines – and are still searching for a place to “arrive” at! Have a quick dekko at our culture deck and our own FOCUS anthem, to get a sense of what it is – to be a part of our team.
THE FOCUS LIFEWe are not the typical company – we never want to be. We are collegial, we are informal, we don’t believe in designations or hierarchies, we laugh a lot & yet we are intense and passionate to the core. Here are a few elements of the FOCUS Life:
WEARING THE WIG
Sounds funny – but is hugely developmental. WIG stands for Wildly Important Goal - A monthly cadence of activities like reading books, writing blogs, doing internal knowledge sharing sessions by everyone in the team!
We appreciate that our work needs as much collaboration as it does introspection too. We also believe that our employees stretch where needed well beyond work hours. Hence we have a 7 hour work day.
An obsession for Feedback on everything we do – we call it Feed Forward though! We do it after every workshop, we do it for everyone every year ….. and we don’t hold back, if we think it is needed in between too! Ouch!
LEARN & EARN
Every single person is encouraged to do his/her MBA – not to get a fancy degree – but because we believe it opens up one’s thinking about the world. That’s not all – you get a hefty bonus for doing that too! Yes, you can earn while you learn!
We are big believers that books are the cheapest & easiest way for individuals and hence the organization to grow. So, anyone wanting to buy ANY book to learn can just go ahead without any prior approvals. All we ask is – do share the knowledge!
Our own internal FOCUS University – no sprawling campuses … yet, but it is our way to ensure that all our people are continuously growing in the FOCUS Way of delivering workshops – and also getting external perspectives!
