Millipic was developed to bridge the gap between brand and consumer. Their creative approach moves away from traditional methods and instead focusses on person to person communication. Their strategies are developed with brand vision in mind, and their handpicked teams are selected to match ethics and approach, their services are designed to run seamlessly with current campaigns.
Millipic feels that it is incredibly important to recognise and reward handwork. The firm believes that individuals respond well to the appreciation of their work particularly when shown through the recognition and praise of their efforts which confirms they are valued. As a result praising hard work can have some benefits, for example, it can increase productivity as professionals are more committed to producing quality work. In addition, it increases work satisfaction, professional happiness, reduced levels of turnover, creates loyalty and a strong team environment, which is a key aspect of Millipic business model.
The firm also goes a step further when it comes to rewarding hard work. Millipic takes their top performers away on R&R retreats and rewards them with a wide range of activities.
The firm believes there are four key benefits when it comes to rewarding the work of top performers, which they have outlined below:
1.) Encourages professionals to work towards shared goals:
There can often be barriers to certain aspects of a business. Going on team retreats can help break down barriers and get individuals socialising with people that might not have seen themselves getting on with while at work.
2.) It exposes coworkers to hidden talents:
Company getaways are a fantastic way to uncover many things you previously did not know about your colleges, whether they are a great singer, talented chef etc. Getting a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle and monotony of day to day life gives a chance for people to come out of their shells and relax.
3.) Bodes well for strong team cohesion:
Co-workers see each other on a daily basis, but spending a couple of days away with them, talking, eating and sharing stories brings them so much closer. More often than not it will create a special bond that is similar to gathering with extended family members. A team that resembles a family are more likely to have better communication, higher levels of trust and appreciation for one another.
However, it’s not just company retreats that the firm use to reward their professionals. The company often have company nights out where they attend local events, bars and do fun activities as a team. Furthermore, the company is looking forward to their Christmas party where they are hoping everyone can let their hair down and reflect on a great year and look forward to an even better 2018.
