Sabrina Gobet, VP of Human Resources at Yellow Door Energy, recently gave an interview with The National about the importance of employee well-being and engagement. Below is an excerpt of the interview.
Yellow Door Energy does not have a clock-in, clock-out culture. Instead, “we trust our employees to do what they need to do. Having trust in our team members is an integral part of our work culture”.
Other employee-friendly policies include two weeks of paternity leave, extended maternity leave, compassionate leave, flexible hours, the option to work from home from time to time and employee awards ceremonies.
The solar company, which follows a hybrid work model, created a weekly sign-up sheet whereby every desk is treated as a “hot desk” and taken on a “first come, first served” basis.
“Even our chief executive and senior executives offered their offices as a way to alleviate the high demand for desks,” says Gobet.
“Every month, we also hold a companywide All Hands meeting where our chief executive addresses employees’ questions and concerns. All our employees join the meeting, in person or virtually, and all voices are welcome to be heard,” adds Gobet.
“We understand that when people feel valued, appreciated and included, they are more motivated to perform to the best of their abilities.”
