WHY DOES SOFTBRICK INVEST IN ITS EMPLOYEES?

Peter Masselink, director/owner of Softbrick, recognizes the importance of work happiness, attention to the development of resilience, vitality and the responsibility of people within the organization. The employees of Softbrick make up its human capital. Therefore, these employees are a crucial part of Peter’s vision – without them, there is no Softbrick.

1. The performance depends on the added value of the individual employees. Therefore it’s very important that employees themselves are aware of how their effort contributes to the success of the organization. It’s important that employees are healthy and up-to-date in their knowledge – even when the venture is growing.

2. Functions and requested competencies change, and employees of Softbrick have to be able to change with the company and continue to develop. Softbrick encourages its employees to take responsibility for and ownership of their own development. Softbrick supports its employees with training, coaching and research.

3. Because of the demands of customers, our organization has to be fast and agile. This means working together and achieving results while maintaining focus and resilience. Sustainability also requires sustainable employability.

Softbrick has employees and searches for employees who have the ability to add value to the company now and in the future. The organization communicates the vision and ambition of the company to its potential employees. In particular:

• Collaboration pays off;

• The employer has a facilitating role;

• Employees have the responsibility to take control of their own employability.

Working on sustainable employability means working on the efficiency of employees. Investing in people leads to employees who fit their jobs well and who feel physically, mentally and socially healthy. When this is the case, employees will work with passion and pleasure. Softbrick has worked with the Performance Happiness approach from the iOpener Institute to achieve this. This approach maps out the happiness of the employee, of the team and of the organization. It provides a concrete development perspective for the individual, team and organization.
