1. “Being able to step outside my comfort zone.”
Taylor Paul, Senior Software Engineer, said she values “feeling challenged and supported at the same time” and “being able to step outside my comfort zone.”
Feeling challenged and having the opportunity to think outside the box opens the door to endless learning throughout your career.
2. “Being able to freely ask questions and engage with my team.”
Jia Wu, Investments Analyst, said what’s important for him is “knowing leaders have an open-door policy” and “being able to freely ask questions and engage with my team.”
A company’s culture can greatly impact its team members. In an understanding and transparent culture, team members are able to collaborate more efficiently to achieve company goals.
3. “A leader who supports professional and personal growth.”
Rachael Smith, Paralegal, said she appreciates “room for professional growth,” and “a leader who supports professional and personal growth is game changing.”
Supportive leaders coupled with opportunities for growth will create a positive work environment for all team members.
4. “An inclusive team environment.”
Ryan Hedrick, Lead Financial Analyst, said he sees value in “an inclusive team environment, the ability to share ideas and feeling empowered to take on new opportunities.”
Being empowered to take on exciting opportunities and to openly share ideas with leaders and peers evokes the feeling that you truly are a part of one team.
5. “Coworkers who are proud of their work.”
Yvonne Huang, Senior Associate Actuary, said she is motivated by “coworkers who are proud of their work and are willing to share their knowledge and skills.”
Working alongside people who are proud of what they do and who make an effort to teach others creates a positive environment where team members are able to cultivate their professional skills.
