It is essential for employers to recognize employees for their good work and encourage behaviors that build the business
LG Electronics India Pvt. Ltd. holds tight to the philosophy of ‘Great Company, Great People’, which underlies that only great people can create a great company. The company’s reputation precedes its performance be it in its space of business or when it comes to customer orientation and service. LG ranks #49 in the Great Place to Work® Institute’s Study.
A sense of empowerment is instilled in each of LG’s employees. There are numerous factors which aid the organization in doing so such as ‘Recognition at work’. As per surveys conducted by LG, money is not the primary motivator for most employees. It is essential for employers to recognize employees for their good work and encourage behaviors that build the business. The company also focuses on fostering Leadership within the organization as it feels it is important to engage the employees in the decision-making process and give them the authority to act intelligently in the best interest of the company. All this is essential to cultivate the leadership qualities in the employees which make them confident, knowledgeable and provide the opportunity to have a command over the subject.
