Dynamic Simplicity: Outsourcing with Compassion

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Wed, Jun 21, 2023 @ 02:11 PM

op360_sage22winners_SquareSince 2006, Stevie-winner OfficePartners360 (OP360) has operated on the belief that simplicity is golden. This means engaging in 24/7 business process outsourcing services to help clients streamline work and focus on their core business.

OP360 has invested in resources and programs that nurture their people's potential and, thereby, support clients' success. They want to add more meaning to work by implementing strategic and impactful community extension projects.

While their business is primarily concerned with advanced technologies, they feel the human aspect makes their culture unique. Central to this simplicity is a dynamic of relationships and interactions built on shared values of engagement, credibility, transformation, empowerment, and service. Below are OP360’s recent achievements:

Credibility
They optimized the company’s intranet and social media presence (Facebook engagement grew from <200 to ∼4,800 annually) to communicate events and policy developments to employees.

Transformation
OP360 joined the Philippine Financial and Inter-Industry Pride to further strengthen equality initiatives and uplift the LGBTQIA+ workforce. In addition, they expanded HMO coverage to include common-law and same-sex partners as applicable dependents.

Growing from within, with 50% of new hires being referrals, OP360 joined the Information Technology & Business Process Association of the Philippines, which opens doors to collaborative events and upskilling & reskilling opportunities for employees. 

Service
OP360 launched the Donate-a-Day Program, allowing employees to donate a day of their basic earnings toward supporting underserved communities in Cebu. OP360 matched every donation and distributed grocery baskets, face masks, and vitamins to beneficiaries.

Empowerment
Since the pandemic began, OP360 has supported employees and their dependents by providing flexible work arrangements with a corporate telecommunication package. Paid time off and care packages were offered to employees who tested positive for COVID-19. 

Resources were mobilized to facilitate recovery and relief efforts for employees and their families impacted by Super Typhoon Odette (Rai), specifically by:

  • Opening sites as temporary shelters, where packed meals and drinking water were available for free to employees and their families
  • Launching the Heroes Program, which extended a one-time financial bonus to employees who resumed onsite work immediately after landfall
  • Releasing a premium to all Visayas-Mindanao employees who worked during and after the landfall and additional early pay to help ease financial difficulties
  • Granting 100 employees a one-time financial grant as part of the #TogetherWeRise Financial Assistance Program, which saw OP360 executives matching every dollar donated by generous clients

Engagement
OP360 has launched “common ground,” allowing employees the chance to chat with the top leadership about topics like company direction and personal hobbies. They also have initiated counseling sessions with HR and marked Wednesdays as Safety and Health Day, during which they share mental health tips.

There are organized virtual programs with professionals to foster an inclusive and safe space for a diverse workforce. They also recognize select employees for referring talented people through an all-expense-paid shopping spree.

This culture has been critical to their low annual attrition rate of 3% for all business lines combined. Additionally, their most recent employee evaluation gave them an overall score of 4.5 out of 5, which indicates that 94% of their people are satisfied with their roles, and 93% are having fun at work.

Team OP360 is fueled by recent achievements to continue doing right by employees, clients, and local communities.

OP360 won a Silver Stevie Award for Employer of the Year in Other Industries in the 2022 Stevie® Awards for Great Employers.

Skills Development Solution Provider Emphasizes Self-Awareness Among Leaders for Lasting Business, Employee Growth

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Mon, Jun 12, 2023 @ 10:48 AM

22 spotlight Square-2-Jun-12-2023-02-45-28-9145-PMGold Stevie® Award-winner Management Dynamics Global (Management Dynamics) are leadership and team development experts, renowned for their ability to catalyze performance through teams, people, and servicing top global brands.

Management Dynamics routinely works with international businesses across a diverse range of industries and scales, building strong partnerships to inspire lasting growth, transform company cultures, and create differentiated performance.

With 25+ years of corporate human resources experience, Management Dynamics focuses on helping businesses adapt, survive, and thrive in a world of constant change by equipping teams and leaders to step up and stand out through their unique and unrivaled research-based blueprint for success. 

In the blueprint, they detail how the greatest leaders, teams, and organizations think, act, and communicate. It includes innovative and interactive in-person or virtual learning experiences that shift mindsets, differentiate performance, and fulfill potential. They leverage cutting-edge tools, methodologies, and their vast experience to build bespoke solutions across four key areas: leadership, teams, coaching, and talent management.

Management Dynamics Blueprint in Action
In 2020 a global leader in consulting and engineering commissioned Management Dynamics to attract, develop, and retain a pipeline of future-ready leaders to overcome the impact of COVID-19, a declining industry, and rising attrition rates.

Using the results of a Korn Ferry Assessment of Leadership Potential, their team designed a custom Leadership Excellence Programme to elevate the client’s business, power their progress, and pioneer their long-term success. 

They tailored the program to meet the client’s strategic needs and “Future Fit” vision of an empowered community culture, including 40% women leaders by 2030, with participants able to embrace bold ideas, new ways of working, and skills for the future. 

Management Dynamics’ approach to leadership development exceeded their client’s expectations by applying the following approach:

Employing pioneering methodology. Using the language of data, analytics, and science to prove skill gaps and associated risks to the business, they converted very technical thinkers to the value of building self-awareness, big-picture thinking, and experimentation into their leadership mindsets. As one participant commented: “The focus on self-awareness and self-management is what most businesses miss.”

Unlocking exceptional value. Where previous “cookie-cutter” in-person courses cost the client £300k+, this virtual offering unleashed 160+ Korn Ferry assessments, 365 hours of workshops, and 6,000+ hours of learning for 149 participants across 23 countries—all within 12 months and a budget of £30k. A 645% increase in participation exposed a rich global pipeline of future talent to accelerate and reinforce succession plans at all levels. 

Addressing diversity and inclusion. Virtual delivery lifted barriers to advanced leadership development for a much wider global cohort of the client’s employees. With 100% online and 90% co-facilitation, the client saved £300k+ in consultancy, travel, and accommodation; supported their 2030 goal of 40% carbon reduction; and connected a diversity of current and future leaders, including 36% women.

Inspiring long-term loyalty. Embedding pioneering, scalable talent development into a 160-year-old business highlighted that the client’s company remains an exciting place to work within an evolving industry. Engaged and empowered participants rated the program 4.7/5, surpassing the average of 4.4.

Looking toward the future, Management Dynamics noted that its rapidly growing reputation for transforming people, cultures, and organizations has catalyzed its own business performance. They are forecasting an exponential growth target for the next 5 years. 

Management Dynamics Global won a Gold Stevie Award for Leadership or Skills Development Solution Provider of the Year in the 2022 Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

More than that, employees are enabled to set their own pace and strategy without being forced to follow a common standard. 

Their philosophy encourages employees to have freedom and autonomy, with a flexible work time policy that allows employees to be more independent, productive, and creative by fully controlling their 8 hours.

In 2020, they launched a CSR project called: “SMART GREEN FOREST” that planted more than 6,600 trees to reforest the barren hills at Xuan Son National Park.

SmartOSC won a Bronze Stevie Award for Employer of the Year in Computer Services in the 2022 Stevie® Awards for Great Employers.
