TRUST – ONE OF CORE VALUES AT ABSOLUTE
A personal reflection from Kyle Grant, a Technical Product Manager at Absolute
Building trust can be a tricky thing. One would think that refraining from telling lies would be the only step needed in order to gain trust. However, this is rarely the case. Trust requires consistency, delivery on promises, and transparency. Without these things, trust can dwindle within a relationship.
This can be especially true in the business world. Many companies tend to overlook trust. Emerging markets and young companies tend to forget how important the concept of trust is to the overall well-being of their organizations, leading to a lack of transparency and a sense of insecurity among employees.
I have worked for and heard about companies, in all kinds of industries, where the role of the manager is to look over everyone’s shoulders as they work. They’re there to babysit the employees and the employees are painfully aware of it. This in turn creates uneasiness because most people in the world don’t do their best work when placed under a microscope. I would put money on the fact that most people sing their best when no one is listening. The same will usually be true of any professional, whether they’re a designer, a writer, or a developer. Constant observation can create anxiety, which can then often prevent someone from doing his or her best work.
Trust must also go both ways. If a manager decides that they won’t constantly hover over their employees and track their progress like a watchdog, then the employees have a responsibility not to take advantage of that trust. In my experience, I’ve found this fairly easy to do, since responsibility gives me a sense of pride that pushes me to do my best.
There are many other cases where trust comes in play between an employer and employee. Employers trust that the employee will speak up when they’re unhappy with a situation, and the employee trusts that their voice will be heard. The employee trusts that the employer will follow through with their promises. This last one goes a long way to build a feeling of respect and loyalty within an organization.
Some methods of creating trust include having regular 1-on-1 meetings with your employees or managers. This gives you a chance to clear the air if any unknown problems aren’t being addressed. It’s also important not to point fingers when things go wrong. In the middle of a crisis, it doesn’t do any good to place blame. Instead, solve the problem at hand and later on, when the dust has settled, decide as a team how you can prevent it in the future through open and honest discussion.
Since joining Absolute, I have been consistently impressed with the level of trust throughout the organization. On a number of occasions, my direct mangers have told me to take matters in to my own hands, to make the big decision. I have also sat down with my superiors after making a mistake, nervous I was about to get a stern warning, only to be told, “I trust that you’re doing your best, and we know you’ll learn from this.” This message is paramount in my motivation to come into work each day. Not only do I want to work hard to advance my career; I want to work hard to improve the entire company. I have respect for my coworkers and my managers equally. I know that they trust me and I trust them.
Trust is one of the core values at Absolute
Here we are all in a moving ship. Each part of the vessel is integral to the task of getting where we need to go as fast and efficiently as possible. Those of us maintaining and improving the ship trust that our captains are leading us in the right direction, and they trust that our crew will be able to get us there. We’re by no means perfect, there will always be setbacks, but each and every employee is aware of this trust from the first day we walk into the offices; and I don’t intend to let anyone forget it.
(This is a personal reflection from Kyle Grant, a Technical Product Manager at Absolute)
Absolute believes social responsibility is one of our core values and we have a longstanding tradition of giving back to causes close to our employees. Absolute believes that charitable acts of all types are critical to the well-being of communities and is part of our obligation as good corporate citizens. Absolute meets our social responsibility by donating our time, expertise, and financial assistance to various groups and causes.
In 15 of July, our Absolute Vietnam team organized a Giving Event, which is a part of Global Giving Program called Food Bank. We went to a disadvantaged children center to cook for them, bring children more food and further.
Drink for Giving is one of the ideas from our team for more fund to this Giving Event.
Hundreds kilograms of rice, milks, sugar, soaps, … used clothes, used toys and books were those we could bring to ununfortunate children in Binh Duong province, this time. It was much more than happy when we could see the smiles from children there. Others destination and giving projects are planning to be done in the next few months.
