With a culture that strongly values teamwork and champions open communication, Shamrock provides opportunities for employees to work together on projects, promotes cross-collaboration between teams and departments and encourages regular brainstorming sessions. Not only is our collaborative nature evident in our culture, but it can be seen in our office spaces. On each floor, employees have access to breakout rooms big and small, with features like comfortable seating, inspiration-sparking décor, whiteboards and more. Additionally, we provide tools and resources for virtual collaboration, like messaging platforms, project management software and video conferencing technology.
From day one, employees come first. Individuals are encouraged to think and act like owners, and with this ownership comes pride that permeates into projects and ultimately shines a positive light on the future. Shamrock invests in regular training and development opportunities, which allow employees to prepare for what lies beyond their current roles. With early and ongoing opportunities for advancement, Shamrock nurtures employee growth every step of the way. Through this growth-focused approach, employees are motivated and inspired to work toward a brighter future for themselves and for the company.
From fully paid healthcare and comprehensive benefits that start on day one to an impressive employee stock ownership program and generous company 401k contributions, Shamrock shows respect to employees by treating them and their families well. We routinely conduct employee surveys regarding our benefits to understand employees’ preferences and to shape our offerings based on their feedback. Additionally, we show appreciation through companywide awards and gifts as well as department-specific rewards and incentives. Shamrock’s culture is rooted in transparency and communication, and employees are encouraged to add value with their honest feedback.
We recognize that the realization of goals is an integral part of keeping our employees engaged, and our leadership works closely with employees to shape their goals and make sure they are challenged personally and professionally. During our annual review process, we make sure to talk openly and honestly with our employees about their past projects and future aspirations and work collaboratively to develop an actionable plan for attainable short- and long-term goals. We provide ongoing opportunities to advance their careers and even offer sales leadership programs to foster additional growth and development.
Employees drive the change and values within our organization. We work hard to understand what is needed to create a healthy work environment for them to thrive, grow and stay. We encourage employees to speak up and offer direct lines of communication to upper management, so they are inspired to share ideas and feedback. A direct example of this was how we quickly transformed to meet the changing needs of our employees during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. When our employees talked about how important work from home was to them, we listened and shaped a new flexible remote work policy around those needs.
We keep employees engaged by hosting frequent team-building events, both within individual departments and companywide. We hold internal competitions to name new technology offerings, offer incentives for idea sharing and participation and hold team challenges that foster a sense of comradery among colleagues. Additional fun perks include Summer Food Truck Fridays, employee recognition awards, company-sponsored on-site gym classes and the annual hot dog derby, complete with ketchup, mustard and relish hot dog costumes.
Bill Ryan spent decades building a culture that supports the personal and professional growth of every employee that joins the team. He believes people are the key to success and when you combine the right people with the right business model, the potential for success is unlimited. He has also worked to establish strategies for success, which includes encouragements to work together as a team and embrace innovation, that are shared and embodied companywide. And finally, even with a workforce of 2,000+ employees, Bill still sends out a personalized message to every employee on their birthday and their anniversary.
