DSicover You is our internal program that encourages and tracks employees’ progress toward personal goals. The program’s tagline is ‘Better You, Better Us’, and we’ve truly built the program – down to the small details – with that philosophy in mind. From improving fitness to learning a new language, we want to see our employees attain goals both inside and outside the office walls.
Each team member can submit a goal to the DSicover You committee for approval. The committee assigns a point value to the goal, and the employee adds the goal and his photo to our DSicover You wall. This allows everyone to see what others are working on and create synergy around shared goals. We use tokens to represent the potential points, and we move them from jar to jar as steps are completed.
Once an employee accomplishes the goal and all the tokens have been moved to the company’s “completion jar,” she rings our large boxing bell so our entire office is aware of her accomplishment. It signifies the fight each employee or team went through to achieve the goal. We set a goal each quarter for the total number of completed tokens, and have a company reward if the number is met.
Striving toward goals outside of the workday is proven to help you work better. That kind of effect is the essence of the program: By encouraging our people to achieve personal goals and providing a framework in which they can do so, we’re helping them become happier, more satisfied people overall—ensuring our clients receive high-quality, thoughtful work with a smile.
