Is the software we create making the end users’ life easy? Is it cutting cost? Is it making the process faster? What is the end value created by our work is the most important preoccupation we as an organization have and we want our associates to have the same.
Value Creation is not just a core value at e-Zest but it is also a sure fire way to growth and success. It is a guide that helps our actions and interactions in our job and creates wealth and growth for clients and us.
Ownership is all about taking responsibility. It is about taking the initiative to solve problems and acting like e-Zest is your own business. For an owner, no task is too big or small, no task is below or above their status and most importantly, no task is somebody else’s problem.
Owners think in service as well as business terms. They spend money carefully, they invest time in development tasks and they communicate their opinion on matters of the organization. Ownership is the concept that enables self empowered and self managed teams. If you don’t want a boss – act like an owner.
If man did not invent the wheel we would all still be in a jungle let alone talking about IT, good salaries, and on-site postings. Innovation is what truly changes life and creates exponentially greater wealth.
I am a developer – not an inventor is what you may be thinking. But when we talk about innovation,
it is not just the breakthrough innovations that matter. It is the small incremental improvements that also need innovative thinking and help us succeed. Innovative thinking is not restricted to any position or title and should be pervasive in e-Zest from housekeeping to the Directors and from development to accounting.
Outward success may come in steps but there has to be a continuous journey for it with learning as a key ingredient. Our education can not end with college as the business world is constantly evolving requiring us to constantly learn new things not just technically but also in the overall personal effectiveness sense.
Learning cannot happen if we sit back and expect that the company or anyone else will take responsibility and send us to different classes and certifications. Learning is not only about taking classes, it is a constant process of curiosity and engagement..
Many a times we say to ourselves – I will be creative at work but practically speaking does it make sense to be different at work than any other sphere of life. Living life fully and with zest is a critical value at e-Zest (it’s even in our name).If one is lazy on weekends and does not engage in life through
family, friends, and hobbies they are likely to bring less than their best even to work. People who are passionate about life are able to do a lot more in life with the same amount of time and hence for them ‘I don’t have time’ is never an excuse – they create time for what is important in life.
